Home From The Hill

never will I climb that meadow path
where I did wander in my youth
the hunter is home from the hill

never will I glide across the lake
the blackened mirror of the sky
the fisherman grew old

always I will sleep beneath the stars
at rest at last beside the oak
within my woodland home

no more I roam the valleys that I loved
my boots and gloves are finally stored
the hunter is home from the hill

With a nod to Robert Lewis Stevenson.

Something nothingness dominates. Your poem is powerful and eloquent conveying the theme so well.
The theme and poet felt it very interesting.
Amazing poem! Very beautiful.
I think this poem is very well written. Maby a little cliche but still very good. The ending describes a relisation and concludes the poets thoughts on silence nicely. WP G_G
Actually, i think this is my favorite poem ever. Wow....
