"how brightly the gypsies roam" by Wayne

Oh the grace to roam about
to understand the world in good
to know that things are moving on
moving like they should

Oh the heart strings to love the world
for all its many splendor
to find a place of Avalon
or that witch can be rendered

It isn't prime of time to rest or motive to
it isn't like life to give in
we were never meant to work for nothing
we weren't meant to generally blend

For the lords of land there is only that
all their deeds for the greater good
for all their work to fatten pockets full
of yet more lords like little servants should

So roam about and gather it
enjoy the things there are
know of life and share of it
because no place can own a star.

I love that essence of carefreeness that runs through this poem. Nice poem.

thank you. I wish it ran deeper, and as always I thank you very much for your supportive comments. Often it has been the little things that have kept me writing. So few understand, but it is true. many times in my life I have thought to stop and to just never do any of it again. My head gets filled with self induced thoughts of how for all I put towards it that it hasn't been worth it, that I haven't and can't say what it is that I am meaning to say in all of this. Then I receive a simple yet very thoughtful comment either from a friend on here or (as I did at one time read my work allowed in an open mic setting at a local coffee house) in person, and for some reason I continue to write.

I know I am not that great at it, and I know that most of what I write will never become anything more than expressions posted here or read allowed to a small over caffeinated group at a local coffee house, but still my words got to be known if not understood by another human other than myself, and that is why I keep writing because I just want others to have enjoyed my words. I'm rambling now and I'm going to leave this elongated thank you at that, and just add that your comment brought a smile to my otherwise sad face.

I think it does run deeper. Carefreeness is just at the surface. Behind that carefreeness is a stronger feeling, this eternal longing for something more than freedom. I'm not sure if that makes sense. But I honestly believe there is something there, as I look at it again.

I'm not great at writing either. I have my moments when I'm inspired, but if not for that, my writing would be dull. I don't have hopes of becoming a famous poet either. Expressing is the most enjoyable part of any writing.

I thank you for posting and for your honesty. Thank you creating this community, I think it's great. It makes me smile on my otherwise serious face, to know that someone like you or anyone I meet, appreciates my thoughts and words.
