Take me home–Let me stay

Лунная ночь. Большая дорога

Many a time I’ve come this way,

Tonight I hope you’ll let me stay,

I’ve struggled hard and done my best,

Country road take me home to rest.

.

Trodding between swaying maples

I recall our strife last April,

When secrets gnawed my weary chest,

Country road take me home to rest.

.

Though shadows cross my lonely path,

I’m not wary nor filled with wrath,

I have changed, with love I’m now blessed

Country road take me home to rest.

.

My heart wakens in full moonlight,

Worries melt as stars spark the night,

My tread is bold, I know my quest,

Country road take me home to rest.

This is a Kyrielle in response to Jane Dougherty Poetry Challenge #32.  Jane suggested the form; and offered the Russian painting as a prompt, together with prompt words:  Moonlight, Tread, Wary, Secret, Swaying.

    1. Yes, the refrain was borrowed from that 🙂 I suspect the similarity might stop there (don’t really know the full lyrics) Maybe I’ll take a look.

      1. I like the country road image –along with treading in the moonlight. I have always found that walking allows thoughts and feelings to come up and process.
