Jaybird, this is a wonderfully worded sonnet . Your rhyming is interesting. May your week be blessed with only good things.

I want to say this is perfect, I want to give it six stars, and I would too... but I feel it was cut too short in that last stanza. I feel the rhythm was lost in that abruptness... and that was what lost that last star.

Except for this I think this is perfect in every way. The imagery, the word choice, the rhythm, the flow, the expression of the thoughts underlying it... all perfect.

Well done!

I'm a huge fan of Robert Frost and of his poem. It's a beautiful verse that asks the question, what direction should I take. The poem you have written is equally as lovely. Thank you for sharing

"The road seemed long," at my age they all seem long. Journeys are never ending and there are dreams of happy endings somewhere down that road. We can never hurry a dream, (though at times I wish I could) they arrive and become reality, hopefully then we become content. Best regards.

Your poem reads beautifully, Jaybird. As you say in your opening, many of those who travelled the road with you are now long gone. We all get to that stage where we realise there are more people we know and love up in Heaven, and just a few down here. It's a long road, but when we get closer to the end, we realise time goes fast. Well done, my friend. :) Sandra xx

nicely done another great formal poem from a master of formal verse. You make it seem so easy yet I know that it is hard to get it all to come together but you do and tell a tale of love lost and searching for what comes next in life well done, sir

I am quite a fan of Robert Frost and find his work, like yours to be comforting and familiar.
Your many years of writing poetry is reflected here as the reader feels the ease of the words as they flowed from your pen.
Thank you for sharing this, and if I may say so, someone is still holding your hand!

I'm sure the road well taken has thousands of footprints that you've left behind from your well lived life. Your poem rings true to the flowing rhythm of Robert Frost.

"There's no one now to hold my hand
and show with love they understand.
When gazing at life's setting sun,
regrets are few, with battles won." This is very poignant.

Jaybird--
That "promised land" within your self. There is is huge difference between that and the typical "promised and" Christians "seek." No, I mean it. Your poem is good but you are leading people astray if you are telling them the "promised land" is anywhere but within themselves.

This is a lovely poem in the form of a sonnet. The words flow easily and the rhyme scheme works well within it. It seems as though the speaker has lost a loved one.
