The Mountains Speak to Me

The Mountains Speak to Me,

Hush city
Let my heart follow where it will
to the tallest mountains and the river's rill
You see
my soul has already wed nature's call
where feet may wander and may also fall
like lonely hearts that search the shore
and always leave wanting more
no city block can fill the void
nor lure me in to it's inner noise
for I was betrothed at a tender time
to take a path that leads to a mountain pine
where the sky reins and trees abound
a place where birds follow and know the sound
can you hear it?
I can.......

  1. Gorgeous! esp. love 'where the sky reins'!

  2. A lovely piece! I particularly like

    "for I was betrothed at a tender time
    to take a path that leads to a mountain pine"

  3. Oh Carrie, how this poem speaks to me. Just beautiful!

  4. A lovely reply to the call of mountains

    Thanks for dropping in to read mine

    much love...

  5. Yes we can, and not only that, your words paint quite a lovely image in our thoughts!

  6. We have no mountains here, so I have to travel a long way to enjoy this kind of view. Thank you for bringing to to me!

  7. I am totally in love with this poem. We have our hills nearby, where we go for walks....and absolutly in love with that place!

  8. Hush city!
    I can really relate to that sentiment, Carrie.

  9. Goodness gracious this is gorgeous! I can hear it too ❤️

  10. I see and hear it too, Carrie...thank you, so much for your beautiful voice and the reminder to "sshh" and listen for nature!!

  11. ...river's rill - betrothed - hush. Beautiful ! I walk mountain paths quite often and I connected with this poem - I also love NYC - but only as a vacation destination. Mountains are my home now.

  12. Let my heart follow where it will
    to the tallest mountains and the river's rill

    How nice to play host and to let the heart take its own course.


  13. To be betrothed to a tender time.. I really love how your longing centers there.

  14. Oh Carrie, I like this one. My favorite line is "I was betrothed at a tender time" as it applied to my first marriage. But we survived 13 years before parting. Plenty of time for Mountain Walks.

  15. I definitely can hear it. Love this.
