Let Us Go…--By David Sermersheim--United States

Let Us Go…

you and I
to where 
water meets the sky
and be one again
before all is done
and winter’s dim dark chill
draws down hard and fast
and we cower
from each sullen blast
against what endures
through tentative hour
while waning dreams
fade faster than
feeble ambition can sustain
abiding the angular course
to quiet realm
of solemn darkness 
in silence and peace

  1. Dear David,
    Like your effective use of alliteration throughout. Well-crafted and pleasurable to read.

  2. Thanks, David, "...waning dreams fade faster than feeble ambition can sustain..." is learning for me, you give elegance to reality

  3. David,
    This is beautiful! I loved it!
    Yours truly,
    David Fox

  4. Hi David, I liked this a lot. What every couple needs is a place to find peace to find themselves as one unite. I believe you found it and led the way for many of us to follow.
