Along The Way


Is there one living soul on earth?
Or ever has there been?
Untouched by persecution?
Free from guilt and sin?

Worry ne'er reached the mind?
Oppression stood its ground?
No reason e're to be distressed?
A life, of simplicity unbound.

Wishing I could meet this one,
Ask of the question how,
Escaping all life's failures,
With words, I dare avow.

Oh somewhere in the distance,
Buried deep there lay a plan,
Long forgotten along the way,
Common Ground for all of man.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
