Pausing between lines

For a meaning of words.

Such is the gaunlet

A poet must face.


There are hills easily climbed,

And views of beauty seen.

But yet you wonder

Of the mountain far off.


And as you reach its peak,

You see naught but clouds.

The beauty below you,

Is lost from your sight.


The mountain you stood on,

For a view just imagined.

Left you for a longing

Of the hill easily climbed.

We all pause and you write it very well George
We all climb and naught see the clouds as we
do not see the forest for the trees

Wonderful George
