Psaltydog's Thoughts


Castle of Acquafredda


When life got tough and I needed to think
When emotions soared beyond my drink
I would go to my castle on a hill

Ten miles away from my vanity
An easy climb to serenity
I found peace within my castle on a hill

A grassy knoll above the plain
Walls of ruin are all that remain
Sheltering ghosts in a crumbling domain
I sought solace within my castle on a hill

Today, I know not what to do
Today, my heart is torn in two
I’m six thousand miles from my castle on a hill

I would clear my heart of its cavity
If I could free myself from this gravity
And soar away to my castle on a hill

A grassy knoll above the plain
Walls of ruin are all that remain
The pain within my heart would refrain
Just to walk within my castle on a hill

So, I close my eyes to what is real
I close my mind to what I feel
The surrounding scene seems so surreal
Dreaming, I'm within my castle on a hill

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
