The Reluctant Soldier: XVIII

in wardly searching



Crisp and clear, green, blue, and gold; all dappled flakes

Dotting the ground beneath the trees. I forget,

On days like these, that treacherous fens are near,

Until I smell them.



I do like the stallions. They have spirit;

They are courageous and often quite cheeky.

Some men I know would benefit from somehow

Turning into one.



The clouds are not always oppressive; they’re not

If the air itself is dry and light, floating.

Gray does not have to be drear, not if a flame

Burns in every heart.



I know from my earliest days, all I’ve seen,

From every wanton deed I have witnessed, that

You are wrong! Errant! Failing! You, who taught us!

When will teachers learn?



At last, it seems that my fish-out-of-water,

Megaron, has become a comrade to them.

Ah, I should have guessed from his graceful bearing

That he could dance well.



My mind is a stew; in a sauce of silence,

There sits moments of imprudence, there beside

Days of laughter. My memories are blending;

What do I recall?



The twilight is not red, though it is often

Depicted to be so. It is lavender,

Orange, blue blended purples, and lovely pinks.

Who painted the sky?

Thank you for commenting! I

Thank you for commenting! I enjoyed that one, too. The author doesn't usually lose his cool like that, so it's fun to write him angry.


Spero quod via tua est directa et quod tuum onus est levis.
