A vagabond
Rests awhile
Atop green movements
Of pasture.

Grasp their silence
In tune
To the tract of land
Above this shelter
Of feeding cattle.

The scenery is clear.
Mountain peaks raise freely
Their heads
In view
Of heaven’s dominance.

There is still
A lighter shade
And color
In the dark half
Of the horizon.


About DCG

Poetry writing emerged in me as a channel to relieve my angst and aggression against life and express my emotions on subtle things. It became my diary for quite a while. Feel free to experience my thoughts. If you do require my feedback, please leave a note on my MESSAGE BOARD below. Thanks.

  1. I wish I was there right now. A pastoral poem in the footsteps of Wordsworth!

    Hello there Dennis,
    It’s been such a long time since I came across the word ‘vagabond’, and I realize how much I like it. So much better than any of the alternatives and carrying overtones of rebelliousness and choice of a special way of life.
    Individual word choices are so decisive in poetry. In fact, they are half the battle.
    Such a clean and convincing setting.

    Just ready to go to sleep, and then this.
    Wonderful, really.

    Every vagabond should rest in a place like this, at least for little while.

    “Meadows grasp their silence”
