Let's Go

Spring, 1935 by Kuzma Petrov-Vodin
Let's go to a place where it's just we two,
Where the rest of the world is small
Doesn't have to be fancy or hard to find,
Just some place where we can recall
The good we are blessed with when every day
 I love you and know you love me
No matter how difficult life has become,
It's easier as part of "we"
After some time we'll go back to the world,
Back to the stress and the pain
We'll help where we can and do what we must
Until we're together again.

Oh Mouse ... this is lovely. Always better to be a part of 'we.'

How sweet it is to escape for a while.

Great combo of prompts! Sweet idea of having that escape from the real world.

Marian said...

oooh god how i love this one. just love it, in its formality and simplicity. this is where i go, too. and i'm so aware of my great fortune in being able to retreat to love, too.

...where the rest of the world is small

That is lovely.

Emma Major said...

oh how I long for that escape and to make the stress of the world small

Grandmother said...

Yes, recall the good we are blessed with. Now that's encouragement.

Oh, I wasn't expecting that last line, Ms Mouse.
Excellent poem, and "part of 'we' " is wonderful.

This seems like it ought to be sung by hobbits, right before second breakfast. ;_)And hobbits know a lot.

Susie Clevenger said...

This is so beautiful. I too like the place of we. Thank you for taking part in the challenge.

You know there is a serial killer walking around in a white suit don't you?

I like the spirit of this poem very much. It is such a help to be part of a "we." Neat painting choice as well.

Ellecee said...

To have a place to escape is a blessing, to be able to share that with someone is even better. I enjoyed your poem very much.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I loved this lilting poem, love "as part of we". I agree with Hedge - could be sung by hobbits!

An absolutely essential retreat that is very possible. Let us not hesitate.

Lola, today is our 15th anniversary, and Lex just said this morning, "We have to schedule some getaways, just the two of us." Seems as though he was channeling your lovely energy! Thanks, Amy

Hey! Hey! What a delight to be swept along by this piece. It's wonderful simplicity just blew me away. I'm a happy bunny with this one!

So true. Sometimes you just have to leave the stress and take a break.
It gives you a change to recharge and focus so as to return and face things refreshed.

Lovely poem
