    Mr. Bell is a poet that surely feels life moving, sees the currents of something great flowing all about us. Put simply, I absolutely love his poetry. It is so good, so real. I can only hope for much more to show up here on poemhunter.

Best Poem of R. G. Bell


Home lies that way, somewhere, through the fog,
Down a road I did not ask to be set upon
And most of whose forks were chosen for me
By others no less road-bound than I,
Who find their journey no more worthwhile.

I carry too much baggage, but search for more,
Wish for great tasks while failing small ones,
Pass many milestones, but make no progress.

How long it is to home I only guess.
I have not gone this way before and would not
Know it without the fog. I hope it isn't far,
But somehow begin to fear it is.

Still, distractions let me forget ...

Though I may cast a picture-cloud
And bend it to my mind,
You’ll see it differently endowed,
(Or one of us is blind) .

Please view it as you think it fair,
Your vision claim, defend.
There may, I’ll grant, be some things there
I never did intend.
