This poem is good writing conveying the thought very well. It takes you on the journey giving you a ride showing you the end. Has you to think along the way and to make decisions about what you hear.

Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
A poignant piece that perfectly encapsulates the feelings of hopelessness.

The road less taken's often bare
Earth's custodian ne'er there
To fix the tears from lack of care
And reknit the stitches wear

The search for Frost's land, for Eden
of old...

This is more timely now than when you first
penned it.

Kudos to you!

A thousand years pass by like days
Frigid echoes, desert haze
Ne'er did Shakespeare's tragic plays
Bear this woe into the fray

I love that opening stanza!

Now privileged ranks control the earth
Weighing out each person's worth
Their tolls impeding progress forth
Reveling in moral dearth


This also stands out to me as well. Bravo on this one too


This is a very deep political stand and I wish I had a six to go along very original words and unique presentation I love it!


Michael

Aaaaah, such beautiful flow and easy rhyme, sir -- certainly a tempting draw to the superficial reader... :) :) However, it's your imagery and references that drew me here -- made me read it through a few times before typing. I was not sure if you spoke of the fields of the poetic mind or of the landscapes of the Earth we inhabit.... To be honest, still haven't made a firm decision as I like the way both of them work with the melody that plays as I read it. :) :) :) I do think, however, I lean toward the poetic..... with Frost and his Woods and Shakespeare and his Seas (ocean brine...?) ... even though such gives a bleak outlook to the poets of today: that the over-flowing social media and video generation is barren land for a poet's words to flourish...

Aaaaand, that will be enough of the blonde's reflections for the day - sorry if I'm so very far off base. Twas a beautiful offering that truly takes your reader into worlds of wonder... :) :) Yvette

    I?m glad you had fun reading my work! I like that you took more than one interpretation from the piece, as it was intended to have a somewhat malleable message. Best wishes!

I like the reference to Frost in this poem about wandering and the fact that each year there are less paths to wander because of so called progress. I would think the path less traveled is the one that is most natural and beautiful. We must never give up on finding it.
Keep writing
Happy Holidays

You said a lot about things that have been left to go to pot! But sometimes those forgotten places draw visitors there just because of the nostalgia it may hold to some people. That broken road in the picture may be the broken road in the C&W song that says "God bless the broken road that led me straight to you" LOL Now that we established that, your poem is good. You hit a lot of memories!

I didn't see this before you added, but it can only have helped as this seems quite nicely fitted together. I like the flow of it, in message and the Rhyme & Rhythm of it. Favorite line:

In search of Frost's forgotten land
The path that time remands.

We do forget that we are custodians and should care well for those things in our charge. - Wendy

Your poem is interesting and a little dark and foreboding. I like the flow and rhymes. I like the line, they stop pursuits with hearts austere. I wish the font was a little larger though. All the best, Laura

I don't have any sixes left, or you would have one. This poem is outstanding. The second to the last stanza says so much. Your rhyming is wonderful and your words flow easily, one stanza to the next. Beautiful work.

A Very well-written poem about life and how we make use of our chances to enjoy our lives on earth only depends on the efforts we make to make it wonderful and memorable.
