Sunset

by MoZark

I have seen
the dawning of new years
watched sunsets
o’er the dying old.

My eyes are tired
the road has been long
dust has settled
where the waters flowed.

I have dreamed
where the mornings end,
found peace
in the setting sun.

The drummer
has set the pace
from whence this child
has come.

I’ll walk the slow walk
at eventide
hand in hand
with my only girl.

The true beauty of a new year dawning, my friend...
this poem flows like life itself from dawn to dusk.
All best wishes, Jack - Mary Ann

A soft, gentle pace is felt throughout this poem...like life itself, one step at a time. Loved it! J.

    When we are children we look forward to December in many ways, but a far different story when we are older. Have a grand tomorrow…Jack

    The truth is I didn’t think much of it, except for the last stanza.

    Thank you I’m glad too that you read this and was so moved. That’s the job of the poet but sad to say he/she doesn’t always hit the mark, again thank you.
    Have a grand tomorrow…Jack

    Sunsets are beautiful and moving and in a way I can’t wait to see the other side of them.
    Thank you for your kind words. Have a grand tomorrow…Jack

Very beautiful, Jack - one of your best! A feeling of slow, tired acceptance of life comes through.

    About a week or so before I wrote this I closed my wood shop for the winter that might be how this poem came to be. I truly appreciate your comment.

dear Jack

a very finely penned piece

```````
i have one thought though about
a slight adjustment to the last Stanza

I’ll walk the slow walk
at eventide
with the hand in hand
of my only girl.


of course just toss it in the circular file if
it offers nothing of worth for you.

regardless , a much enjoyed poem

    I never reject the thoughts of a more gifted poet than I and there are many.
    Thanks for the suggestion. Have a grand tomorrow…Jack

    You say “A touch of melancholy in it for me,” It is with me as well. Thanks Lindsay, for your time and your fine poetry. Have a grand tomorrow…Jack
