This poem comes from Autumn Leaves:
I’ve climbed snow-capped mountains,
Searched lush valleys below.
I’ve trekked through high aspen meadows,
Drinking where hidden streams flow.
I’ve climbed over lofty crags
And walked through wildflower meadows where you roam.
I’ve smelled spruce-laden air
In the untamed beauty you trod and know as home.
I’ve searched when hot and thirsty,
Muscles crying out in pain.
I’ve hunted while wet and hungry
Against your allies, snow and rain.
When matching wits, my hunter’s tricks
Have all seemed to fail,
Yet your courage and strength never falter
As nature helps you prevail.
Each year, aspen trees
Begin wearing coats of red and gold,
When campfires flicker in the mountains
Against night air, crispy cold.
My ears strain to catch a bugle call,
Which splits the clean, clear air.
The mighty stag, Wapiti,
Is moving in his lair.
Yes, I’ll answer his ringing challenge,
For not to respond would cause me pain.
It’s time to once more play hide-and-seek
On his terms, in his terrain.

Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your
website in internet explorer, could test this? IE still
is the market leader and a good part of other people will omit your fantastic writing due
to this problem.
Actually, I have checked out my IE. I have found it to be doing well. Perhaps it is your device or provider? Try going directly to my URL and see if it still does it: My URL is http://www.wfosterwelborn.com and my RSS Feed is http://www.wfwelborn.wordpress.com – Check out my archive.
This is the right web site for anybody who wants to find out about this topic.
You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been written about for many years.
Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!
