Poetry Corner: Cry

By Richard Wallace

I climbed the highest mountain

I watched the eagle soar

I went to the valley bottom

The valley bottom and more

I spun on the crest of a mighty wave

While a hurricane raged in the sky

I flirted with fame and fortune

It’s enough to make you cry


I shouldered the clouds of darkness

While thunder had its way

I wrestled fire and lightning

Then the sun took it all away

The coyote called to the husky

With a mystical melody

The message was there for all of us

Strange that I didn’t see


Consider the highest mountain

Consider the valley floor

The wrestle with fire and lightning

Each day brought more and more

And still there are those among us

While under a deep blue sky

Who would trade this for fame and fortune

It’s enough to make you cry
