A Poem by Rita L. Sev

An Epiphany...



Across the lonely wilderness

Through bleak and barren lands;

Would we journey thus to hold

Great riches in our hands?


The treasure looked so very small;

Colossal was its worth

A bundle of the purest love

So rarely found on earth


It seems now an abandoned quest

Some say for just the weak

But for this great and perfect wealth

The wise will always seek

"Oh, come let us adore Him" should not be forgotten; worth more than silver and gold; He is the greatest wealth; the foolish forget, the wise continue to seek!
Beautiful sentiments to end the Christmas season!

Thanks so much, Renee! :)
yes, Wise Men seek peace and love...the others, they long for and seek wealth thinking that will lead to Un-Wise....

Yet the un-wise abound... *sigh*... Thank you, Jacob.
Really loved the rhyme between stanzas and each verse, really made the poem flow efficiently. The use of rehearsal questioning in your case was an absolutely wonderful choice. Also the choice of diction clearly coveys to the audience, and the abstractness gives the free to interpretation concept to your poem. To me it was about the journey of life explained or described on a metaphorical level and the concept of humanity and such. A really splendid poem, really makes the reader consider what the poem means to them. Well done, keep up the good work:)
