Man in a Golden Helmet-Rembrandt

Man in a Golden Helmet – Rembrandt van Rijn

************

Wanderlust had led me far

Following that fated star

Leading to the gates of war

That Satan’s own had left ajar

 ***

And now I see on looking back

With wearied eyes and burdened back

A tired old man with nothing left

With mourning soul and heart bereft

*******

How can this world not be ready for the

Quiet happiness and calm of peace?

Into the Air   7 comments

Musical-Background-1287620[1]

Feelings racing up on high

Dancing lightly ‘cross the sky

Laughing while our spirits fly

Never asking who or why.

***

Splashing sprightly through a stream

Chasing a vision of rainbows

Following an illusive dream

Down the path that life goes

***

Grinning, smiling, lightly singing

Everything here is passing fair

Music sounds and bells are ringing

Cares and worries go….,  up into the air.
