I went to visit an old state the other day
Never expecting to extend my stay
But stayed until I thought my fascination quelled
And upon leaving the tears in my eyes swelled
Was it the mountains so severe and high
Staring at their faces and amazed at the sky
I have no ties to the people or the land
But their majestic view was tremendous and grand
My mind was rent with mountains in my mind
Nowhere I looked could another scene I find
I had only dreams of exploring them once more
And couldn’t leave out of the departure door.
And so I stayed leaving everything else behind
Emotional ties tore at me, tearfully blind
Yet I couldn’t turn from the mountainous hills
Where just a thought of them was full of thrills
Sights were all that were needed to excite
No useless boredom any longer in sight
There is always a pass to travel up and down
Where stagnant sadness is no longer around

About Barbara Blackcinder

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.
