A Sunset Song Poem by Sandra Fowler

A Sunset Song

Rating: 3.7


I sit beside the hearth fire of your words,
A temporary light by feelings heard.
Beyond the dark rim, winter's killing fields
Encroach upon a heart by memory sealed.

Time like a brave old rooftop slants with snow,
Pictures the elegance of far ago,
When warm sound was enough to make the cold,
Paint a sunset of instrumental gold.

I'm there. I'll start the fire and put on a pan of cocoa. I'll pour you a cup. Would you like marshmallows?

I admire your intertwining images and thoughts as well as selection of just the right words, all so successfully done which provides much more imbedded meanings to uncover.

I'm with Ben on this one. Several meanings, but only one that is sad. This should be published....it is that good. A song of images only you could write! ! xxElysabeth
