Within

Within

A Poem by Christopher Kneipp
"

Writing is my invitation to come and see what I see

"

        

 


What can I say

That's not been said

Or do that's not been done

What road is there

Still untraversed

What race that's still unrun

 

And where is there

A virgin land

Where no one else has been

Where is that place

That untouched world

Whose sights remain unseen

 

I know of only

One such place

Which I alone can find

And none but me

Can claim to see

The world within my mind.

After reading all your poetry on this site, I was reluctant to comment on this one and would have prefered to post on one with less reviews. However, kept getting drawn back to it, the presentation, feel, rhythm, rhyme and especially the subject make it an outstanding piece.

As a lunitic rhyming poet myself a lot of my work is read between the lines and creeps into the depths of one's mind so I found it refreshing to listen to your comparasons of the mind to virgin territory that people seldom explore fully.

Like you I have published little on this site but my work is extremely diverse and this I found in the other work of yours I have read with no restrictions of where your pen takes you. I seldom get the chance to look in at the poetry sites but it is work of this nature that makes the effort worthwhile. I sincerely hope I see more of your rhyming poetry as to be honest this is the medium I enjoy and have a passion for.

Thanks for the read,

Ivor

An Excellent poem! The presentation, and rhyming treatment are top notch. It's not trite, or self indulgent. The thought behind this is lovely. Smiles M

That, my friend, is a corker.
The feeling that there is nothing left to be found, that there are no adventures to be had that haven't already been had. So very well put, a very light touch.
Good work mate.

This is a wonderful poem. I understand well the feeling. I used to have a favorite place in the woods that I could go where i could write, cry, even scream if I felt like it. the surrounded land was purchased by a hunting club. It's too dangerous for me to go there now. It's sad.

Wow. This poem is written very well. It is also a very interesting poem. I can picture an 'Untouched World" and a "Virgin Land". A very creative piece of writing indeed.
