.Fog


Over that mountain the sun is shining
Over that mountain it's day
Here in our valley the fog is hanging
Over a world of grey.

Over that mountain our children go climbing
Seeking the modern way
Here in our valley our hearts are pining
For those who've gone away.

Into our valley the sun is peeping
Into a distant day
Over that mountain our children come seeking
That they have thrown away.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Just words that seem to run together
While drving through the fog one morning.

    ((Just words that seem to run together)) ... of course words form a string of images and ideas when they come from a master hand, they don't stay as just words, but become a meaningful poem...! ! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
