! The Road Ahead - Poem by Bob Blackwell

We must grow with silence,
Through the winter of our
Ignorance as we wait the
Spring of change, to grow
With favor in the warmth of
Summer sun and rain. When
Autumn comes we hear the
Fruits of our silence, then an
Understanding comes to
Give us strength, to face
Our new winters without
Fear but with a new joy and
Appreciation for everything
True, that comes our way.

    Bob I really love your alliteration in the first couple of lines here, - we must grow with silence in the winter of our ignorance, , , , wonderful and the rest of the verse conducts us around the sasons of change in life. You write with such wisdom. from

    I really like the sentiment here, especially your ending:

    'face Our new winters without
    Fear but with a new joy and
    Appreciation for everything
    True, that comes our way.'

    Well done.
