He dared and bought a dusty saddlebag,

A prophet galloping east.

Bold shouts of lean children condemning the rust,

Wise guardian searching the woodland

For windmills,

Reaching the mellow and bare country around.

    I like the choice of saddlebag over book, it forces me to connect as I read. I think that the brevity of the piece also makes the reader think more and interact more with the writing. Thank you for sharing it.

    • Yousei Hime – thanks a lot for the appreciation! I found that I like brief poems better, so I seem to have the tendency to brevity, as well.

    A poem that employs setting to tell a story.

    • irene – thank you for stopping by! Yes, that is exactly what I tried to do. And honestly, it was somewhat hard. As was choosing the words for my wordle, in fact. At the end, I realised I have too many nouns and not enough verbs or adjectives. Next time I’ll put more effort in the initial selection, promise 😀

    Your piece evoked images of the children for me. Well done!

    You’ve gotten a remarkable poem from almost nothing but your chosen words.
    I usually go in the other direction: lots of padding.

    • barbara – thanks for the high opinion. I always try to stick to the words as neatly as possible. Yet, I’m afraid, sometimes meaning and message, as well as poetic form, suffer from that.

  5. This had a lovely rustic feel to it. Nicely done.

    • Anthony – yes, in fact, it does! I hadn’t noticed it. That is how thinking of Quixote makes me feel. Thank you for stopping by!
      (And I really enjoyed your post, I commented already)

  6. You wrote a short poem so filled with deep thoughts..
