Just Beyond The Setting Sun - Poem by David Harris

Just beyond the setting sun
lies a land where green leaves grow.
Just beyond the setting sun
seasons different come and go.
A warmly place
of peace and tranquillity.
Just beyond the setting sun
lies a home for you and me.
A place of no worries
where life is idyllic
to spawn generations to come,
warm in the summer sun
and cool as winter comes.
Just beyond the setting sun
lies a home we always wanted,
a paradise of beauty,
fulfilment and tranquillity.
Just beyond the setting sun
where our dreams come from.
There within those pastures green
lies our future destiny,
just over the horizon,
just beyond the setting sun.

    The title of this poem is beautiful and I think it is an inspirational romantic poem David. I can almost hear it in a song (I have just been watching John Denver on DVD) and if you ever want to put words to a song this one would be just great! 10 Karin Anderson (Report)Reply
