As Cloud Now Lies Upon The Hills Poem by ANDREW BLAKEMORE

As Cloud Now Lies Upon The Hills

Rating: 5.0

As cloud now lies upon the hills
That cuts their peaks like scything blades,
Engulfing then the emerald slopes
And turning them to grey
The distant land now cloaked afar
As hidden is its shape and form,
I can but dream of times before
Now lost unto this day.

And as the light does slowly fade
As clouds do roll across the sea,
Upon the gusts of wind that blows
The bringers of the rain,
Like smoke they drift and fill the air
While shrouding every hill and field,
A chill descends a ghostly hand
Does grip this scene of pain.

It shan't let go until the front
Has passed to let the sunlight shine,
Upon the peaks and emerald slopes
That once did greet me there,
And yet for now there seems no end
No beam to break the drizzle skies,
That sweeps across the waiting land
And fills it with despair.

Beautiful poem Andrew. The anguish that lies within your images of nature takes the reader beyond mere pastoral beauty. Stunning, heartfelt writing. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Greenish thoughts peak high, in mind- sky in the poem- gets gradually cloaked in grey...light- the happy feelings- recedes, where? And the mind unhappily wet- rain drizzles- knowing of a trip led by a gripping ghostly hand cold to an unknown land through hide out ways...awesome poem, Andrew...nature apparently prominent though, the poem is more philosophic and insightful...the style traditional and pure...10+

A dreamy beautiful write Andrew. Although not rhyming, it seems to rhyme somehow. It is somewhat musical in its arrangement and a great read, very well produced indeed. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
