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**

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.
