Congratulations to Alex Tanner on a job well done 

 

Lost Companion

By: Alex Tanner

 We've walked wild blossom filled meadows,

Bees hummed in verdant grass,

Birds sang in leaf clad hedgerows,

Rabbits fled as we strolled past.

 

We've walked through winter woodlands

Snow deep upon the path;

Geese took their flight before us

By ponds like crystal glass.

 

Winter's dawn or Summer's sunset

Together we have been

Inseparable companions

Linked by a common gene.

 

No more to race through bluebell woods,

No more to frighten hares,

No more to roll in autumn leaves,

No more to hear my cares.

 

No more to sit in dappled glade

As you lay at my feet,

Your soulful eyes ne'er left my face

You judged not when I speak.

 

Alone I walk the meadows

The woods in winter too.

And though I walk in silence

I feel your presence through.

Thank you Michael, most unexpected. Alex

I could not help myself. but come back for yet another reading of your lovely wistful poem. This is an excellent piece of work. I hope I am not out of line here, because I feel I must quote to you my favorite lines:

No more to sit in dappled glade

As you lay at my feet,

Your soulful eyes ne'er left my face

You judged not when I speak.
