Go The Distance

I desire
to go the distance
of the fire

is my true mistress
I’ll not tire

I prefer
the higher mountain
here to climb

I’ll revere
the call of reason
not the rhyme

I desire
to go the distance
I demand

for no resistance
Perfect, planned

    Ahh, great poetry. I’m afraid poetry isn’t my forte 😦

  2. I think we all would like to think we could go the distance, that we are stayers not sprinters. Lovely Helen.

    Oh, Helen!! I missed your work over the holidays. Sorry I have been so late in getting here on some days. Life is rather swirly/twirly right now. 🙂 I loved this! xxxx

    • Thanks Skye! I haven’t been around much myself either – work stuff for me as usual – so have tried to keep up with everyone and not done it so well…it just looks like I’m here more than I am because I have poems scheduled to post each day till the end of the year. 🙂 🙂
