Villanelle: A Silver City of One’s Dreams


A glorious city spired gleams up there
With mountain ranges, silver peaks background
The wayfarer much wonder-struck does stare

A dream appears to have come true but rare
A road that winds through thick forest is found
A glorious city spired gleams up there

The road is lined by silver birches fair
And deer so freely grazing here are found
The wayfarer much wonder-struck does stare

The smell of musk and berries fills the air
In trance, the traveler walks the road dumbfound
A glorious city spired gleams up there

The rain-cast skies have clouds like silverware
The heavenly scene is haunting holy ground
The wayfarer much wonder-struck does stare

To reach the dream-like city, all would dare
No wonder all who’ve seen the place are bound
A glorious city spired gleams up there
The wayfarer much wonder-struck does stare

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
