Shaded Avenues

Down shaded avenues I wander
'Midst the falling Autumn leaves -
In solitude to dream and ponder
On all which the world now grieves.

Sweet melodies have softly faded
With the dying of the sun -
The paths of joy and love abraded,
All things lost and all things done.

With tranquil mind and silent yearning
For a time when peace shall be -
Armed then with love and gracious learning,
Shall my heart and soul be free.

Thus on to distant realms I travel,
Searching for a future time
When every dream shall then unravel -
Splendid, wonderful, sublime.

Ah, be then still my soul forever,
No more tossed, torn, nor defiled –
All life’s vicissitudes to sever,
Seeking lands yet fair and mild.

Oh, for a land where sunshine lingers,
Oh, for a land of sweet repose
Where every care slips through my fingers -
Peacefully ling’ring at the close...

Ah, peacefully ling’ring at the close.

    Sweet melodies have softly faded
    With the dying of the sun -

    All things lost and all things done.

    Truly this is a very breathtaking write Valerie. You so eloquently described a
    place that is so beautiful in all it's surroundings and glory. To exists in a state
    of bliss as this poem suggests is quite satisfying. This reminds me of my poem
    A Land so Fair. An Inspiring and uplifting write.
