Country Walking


I walked a league and o'er the moor;
I walked and walked as ne’er before,
And on to walk from dale to hill
And on again to claim the thrill.

Behold! that walking does for me:
The senses heightened, mind of glee,
While rolling vistas pass me by
To swell the heart, enthrall the eye.

    I really enjoyed this lovely poem. It reminded me of some of Robert Frost's work. If your time permits please read several of my poems about the outdoors, spring and the country, I think that you will enjoy those as well. (Report) Reply
