Poems from 'Transcapes' UP-HILL Again
Updated: Jun 28
Yes, the journey took the whole long day
And it was up-hill to the end.
It climbed and woundround all the way.
You must be tired my friend
I battled through the cold and dark
To glimpse the inn that night.
They say you always find the mark.
Yet some don’t see the light.
I’m with the other travellers now
Who walked ahead of me.
I was welcomed here with open arms.
You worried for nothing, you see.
Now I rest and gain the strength
To reflect upon the day.
And realise for the journeys length …
I was with you all the way.
(After 'UP-HILL' by Christina G. Rossetti)
