THE HERMIT


For today’s prompt, write a lone poem. Perhaps the poem is about a solitary wanderer or person who just prefers to go it alone. Or a lone winner, lone wolf, or some other solo individual. Or alternatively, I’ll accept poems that are about loans or that are about being alone.

THE HERMIT


by John Yeo

The hermit sat in some welcome shade,
Sunshine lit up the forest corners,
Nobody ever visited this secret glade.

A gentle breeze the branches swayed,
A sparkling stream with cool clear waters,
The hermit sat in some welcome shade

Wild birds sang and approached unafraid
Colourful, friendly, social performers,
Nobody ever visited this secret glade.

Deer who grazed here never strayed
Far from this glades secret borders,
The hermit sat in some welcome shade.

Butterflies fluttered and Rabbits played,
Sheltered safely here from life’s scorners
Nobody ever visited this secret glade.

After he dumped the old life he had made
For a quiet life to escape from his creditors
The hermit sat in some welcome shade
Nobody ever visited this secret glade.
