Long, Long, Long, Long Ago

Rating: 4.4
Long, long, long, long ago,
There lived a man named Santiago
He loved to play his pipe day long,
By the rivulet and hill along.
The tune of the pipe filled the air,
Nature the listener, human a rare!
With its melody danced the trees,
The brooklet stopped going freeze.
The sky remained azure always,
The Sun could not withdraw his rays.
He had nothing to have there,
Squirrels cracked nuts to share.
The song birds singing moved around,
Keeping in pace with his lovely sound.
Happy was the man Santiago,
He lived there long, long ago.

Yet another poem of yours that moved me. Basically I'm a dire lover of nature and here you've painted a serene nature in your poetic canvas. So nice.

I can swear that Santiago is really me in another time and place! I think I meet all his qualities except that I don't play any instrument, I just write poems and dance! Well Crafted write! Thank you for sharing and keep it up! God Bless You! Romeo-NYC
