THE SIGHT MOST DEAR

I have seen the snow-capped mountains
and the restless surging sea.
The dark green depths of the forests
always cast a spell over me.

I have felt the witching of deserts
and been spell-bound by Northlands drear.
I have watched a poem in motion
when I startled a bob-tailed deer.

Oh, the world is so full of beauty
unbounded, priceless and free.
Yet nothing touches my heartstrings
like the lights of home beckoning me!

  5. Isn't it amazing- the first paragraph of your poem can be the most beautiful, breathtaking thing in the world, to the most scariest and dangerous places. Ironic, huh?

    Loved this one Margie! :)

  9. Margie, so beautiful and very true! I always think about the "grass being greener" and living in another city or even Europe! I know I would miss my family tremendously and that's what truly matters.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!

  21. Those snow capped mountains are a beauty to see and even in July! Quite breathtaking! Your poem expresses nature so well, you can enjoy the beauty of those snow capped mountains, but home is where the heart is.
    Hope you are having a good week.

  24. Wait! We’re missing a very important poet
    Margie hasn’t come back, in case you haven’t noticed
    She hasn’t said one word since yesterday
    Without her little poems, my entire world is gray!
    I don’t know what to do other than wait here
    Maybe make a martini or suck down a beer
    Hopefully by the time she gets back
    I won’t be ossified- laid up on my back
    I’ll be quick and ready to read something fresh and new
    I hope Margie’s okay, because I haven’t got a clue!

    Come back Margie!
