I Walk On Alone - Roundel - Poem by David Wood

I walk on alone in Autumn's fading sun
Along the Gower's windswept lanes blown
By wind off the sea with leaves now spun
I walk on alone

The wind in tall trees voicing a quiet moan
As I join the coastal path that begins to run
Around the wild rugged Welsh coastal zone

Such views of sea, sky and cliff second to none
In all of nature never was such a glorious throne
Passing hikers mesmerised by the view, hearts won
I walk on alone

Topic(s) of this poem: autumn, nature


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The Gower Peninsular in South Wales is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is part of the coastal path of Wales. I've often walked the paths with my dog Clara.

See my poem She Was A Beauty Fair for the poetry form for Roundels

    Beautiful expression of scenic beauty of natural and wild Welsh coastal side.
    Secondly you mentioned about walking alone which says about your deep involvement with nature and about a little loneliness also. Very nice David.

    First off, this is a beautiful poem, doing a great job on conveying the beauty of this coastline. You had me at such beauty of sea, sky, and cliff I looked up a description of the Roundel and you've done a nice job with your refrain, I walk alone, to add to the musicality and mood of the poem. Well done! (Report) Reply
