Ellery Lake - Yosemite

In natureís temple Iíll reclaim
Lost gratefulness in me
For what continues yet unfeigned
In natureís temple Iíll reclaim
And from this matchless lofty flame
Of water soil and tree
In natureís temple Iíll reclaim
Lost gratefulness in me

In natureís temple we conclude
Godís majesty resides
With ruggedness her cloak imbued
In natureís temple we conclude
That given times when hearts will brood
His arrant love confides
In natureís temple we conclude
Godís majesty residesÖ

In natureís temple some profane
And some boast insincere
Winsomely with words inane
In natureís temple some profane
Of this conceit I shall abstain
Averting speaking fear
In natureís temple some profane
And some boast insincere

In hopefulness we will succeed
Well past all limitations
As we pursue our holy creed
In hopefulness we will succeed
And if by chance we must concede
Our failures on occasion
In hopefulness we will succeed
Well past all limitations

I've heard the term but now see the beauty of this triolet form, Richard, breathed in both words and sentiment. Such a perfect style for your message and I love the metre and rhythm which sets up such a strong sense of ascent and conquering. This is indeed a pillar of a poem in the Temple of God. Great work, thank you, Kate xx

...a resonant reverie of spirituality... formally, how like a villanelle, contextually your content is potent as a rising swell... and an ending that takes us well beyond who can tell... sweet verses indeed.

Reviewed by Douglas Bentley 8/4/2012
An eagle stretches it's wings to the sky
It's there where the beauty lies
Through the canyons on high
Echoes a windy cry.

Once clearly seen by the eye
The beholder can not deny
Speechless, the lips remain dry.

Wow this reads so nicely and is beautiful. When you can truly relax in nature, it does have that ability to humble you and inspire. I think you are fortunate to live near some breathtaking scenery. Awesome r.

This poem is such an inspiration for me, not only the subject matter but the form, structure, and most of all the artistry and spirituality! Bravo Richard!
