Song Of The Sage (Short Version)

Rating: 5.0
Song of the Sage

I've been to New York City
and London, and to Rome.
I've been to Buenos Aires,
but desert is my home.

I need no supermarket;
just need a little store
with food and bottled water;
can't ask for any more.

Don't need to play my I-Pod,
just hear that coyote howl!
Listen to the nightingale,
and singing of the owl.

Give me the sagebrush prairie;
I'll live there on the plains
among the lizards and the quail
where it so seldom rains.

I've lived in some big cities,
but need a LITTLE town.
NO town is even better;
the plains won't let me down.

This version is published in Panorama,
Volume 36 (2018-2019)

Why do I tell you that here, and not in the poet's notes?

Because the new version of Poem Hunter
messes up the poet's notes
and runs everything together.

A wonderful poem. Five stars and to my favorites list. I dislike the large cities also!

We don't need to be in a highly urbanized and beautiful place to have a meaningful and wonderful life. A great poem so well conveyed . To my Poem List.

Lovely sweet poem calling for a life with minimum of amenities but in the proximity of nature for whatever it may bring.
