The Call Of The Wild

The Call Of The Wild

A Poem by The Iron Horseman
"

When the beauties of the natural world speak to you...

"



The wild places are calling.

Can you hear them? They want you back.

Go paddle that raging river.

Go climb that mountain track.


The rocks, the forests,

The mountains, the streams,

All nourish the spirit,

Give life to your dreams.


A walk along the seashore,

A hike in the hills,

A canoe on the waters,

All good cures for life's ills.


The wind in the trees,

The voice of the sea,

The silence of the desert,

All speak to the free.


The road to the horizon,

The ocean without end,

The limitless, gilded distance,

The next river's bend.


The movement of the clouds,

The sway of the grass,

The rush of the river,

These things never pass.


The world is eternal,

We humans just pass through,

There is peace in the wilderness,

It can bring it to you.

...........(wOw!)...............

I have no words......my voice is in my awe!!

Great imagery, great musicality, simply outstanding!!
(Only thing I would say concerns the "its" in the last line....its presence merely renders "peace" an unnecessary repetition, which would sound better were it to be switched out for an "it". However, without "its", "peace" becomes its own entity that doesn't necessarily apply to the "peace" in the previous line, and thus is able to complement it with its sound without marring it with its meaning and reference point).

I used to prospect for gold in the Northern California and I could not wait for spring to "read" the rivers and then plan my summers to stay at whatever claim I could work. I miss the mountains....

That sounds like great fun! And I love mountains, too.
Nature can heal the illness of the souls if only we take time to go out and listen to it's magic. We are too connected to technology sometimes. Love the wording and the feel of this poem.

If I can ever get there... Hah... My pleasure, friend
City folks only hear noise. Breathe in fumes.
Fight over parking spaces. Yet twenty minutes drive out of most cities, you'll find countryside.
Most don't take advantage. Shame.

"There is peace in the wilderness,
It can bring its peace to you."
I need a year away from the city and the sea near. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
