CAUTIOUS BE THE SIMPLE FOLK

CAUTIOUS BE THE SIMPLE FOLK

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Triumphantly distressed.

"
CAUTIOUS BE THE SIMPLE FOLK

I feel the earth move sun ward,
While triumphantly distressed.
A whisper on the tumult,
Seeds a mournful soul depressed.

A freehold of thanksgiving
From a wish that failed to act,
Belies the faithful servant
Whose own sorrow lies intact.

All losses are restored to one
Who silently succeeds,
But cautious be the simple folk
Whose only thought is greed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even in her pain, she sees the light at the end of the tunnel. The sorrow and grief never really disappear, but they can be lessened as time goes on. The last stanza has me stumped. Simple folk, in my experience, are seldom selfish. Those who have the least tend to give the most. As always, your words are written in precise rhythm and rhyme. Lydi**

my theory in this is that the caution has more to do with not wanting to become a complicated folk with too much money and a lack of caring for others.
The simple folk if they succeed will usually care for others....
because they know what it is like to be destitute and way down the ladder of reputation...

I was glad to read Lydia's review, becuz I do not understand the last 2 lines for the same reason. I read this many times trying to understand, but then I got a totally different idea. I looked at "losses restored" & thought about how I lost my mind 7 years ago after neck surgery (horrible memory issues) & suddenly my mind was restored last year & I wrote a 350-pg book in the last 2 months (not a plug for my book, but just how much this means to me) . . . so I come away with the idea that, had I been intent on getting my mind back, maybe it wouldn't have turned out so well. Instead, I just struggled along, writing & trying to piece together the parts I still had of my mind, then one day I was rewarded for my hard work & faith in life. Sometimes we work too hard for some focused goal, but it can be better to just be the best we can be & let the results appear as they may. So, greed, as in wanting a certain result, can often be stymied in life while we barely notice some miraculous development (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Lovely classical style here Sharon. A real sadness in this poem of someone who has suffered grief. The earth moves nearer the sun. I feel hope in these lines. A feeling that the situation is changing or about to change for the better.

Thanks so much Chris for your kind review of this write! ~Sharon
Nicely rhymed, and with a good philosophy, although sadness lurks in the background. This may be a sign the past needs to be released.
