Villanelle of the Eastern Pond

John G Evans © 2019

Arise, dear child! Walk due East:

I have come to greet you,

Behold! Our open hearts shall meet.

This eastern pond, My masterpiece

I’ve spoken words here, created, anew

Arise, dear child! Embrace this peace.

Through wood, and hill I shall guide your feet

Envision this pond filled with morning dew:

This form of word our covenant, leaving Us, this memory.

Arise, dear child! Come play with me:

My creation waits, tadpoles, marsh, and dragon-flies, too

Arise, dear child! There’s just us Three.

My Love for you abounds as Mystery:

I’ve created earth to be home for you,

Arise, dear child! Delight this feast.

Sleepy boy! So tired and beat,

I shall hold you near:

Arise, dear child! Walk due East;

Behold! Our open hearts shall meet!

Poetry is truth as we share our words that express our stories. I have been writing poetry over twenty years and have been published within many venues, including two books of mine. As poets we speak our truths and become known by our words. If you are a poet...keep writing. There remains joy and love in the solace of the written word.
