lack of wildness

by Henry Burt Stevens

so missing
in my life of late
is a deep sense
of wildness anymore

mostly house bound
or nearby outside
i have domestic
nature tamed

my flowers shrubs
small tree birdfeeder
visitors all of
which i appreciate

but it's not like
walking thru the
Bundy Schoolhouse clearing
up and over the backside

of Unbrella mountain
looking down on the
diggings building
Green River reservoir

now Green River
State Park usefull
well managed but
it's not wildness

besides i'll probably
never see again
even that except
in thoughts and dreams.

I have enjoyed the reading of "lack of wildness". It is a poem that makes one think on life and wonders.

I salute You, Sublime Poet!

Yes looking back as this poem tends to make me want to do, I remember the wild barren trails of my youth, where wildflowers were taken for granted, blueberries were a five minute walk away and the wildlife lived wild.
