Old Dirt Road

Old Dirt Road





I was walking along and old dirt road and came across the hill

And the view took my breath away; I see it in my mindís eye still

It wasnít that large of a place; twenty acres surrounded by woods

And there about middle ways; an ole tin roofed farmhouse stood



And at the ole farmhouse stood some big oak trees

With leaves shimmering and dancing; blown by a gentle breeze

And in the sky a red tailed hawk; headed for the mountain pass

Barefoot on that old dirt road; I knew that I was home at last



My heart began to leap with joy; tears my eyes were filled

My pace began to quicken; now Iím running down that hill

I called out to the ole farmhouse; Mama, Iíve made it home

And then I realized the angels have come; and Mama is gone



I was walking along and old dirt road and came across the hill

And the view took my breath away; I see it in my mindís eye still

Mama is at the river Jordan; drawing pictures in the sand

And Jesus is there waiting beside her; offering me his hand



And the waters shimmer like silver; blown by a gentle breeze

Reminding me of the ole farmhouse and those old oak trees

My pace begins to quicken; now Iím running down that hill

And my heart leaps with joy; tears my eyes were filled

And in the sky an angelic choir; like thunder from a mountain pass

Bare foot on that old dirt road; I know Iím home at last

Simply exquisite parallel picture of earth and heaven, full of beautiful imagery, simile and personification.

'With leaves shimmering and dancing; blown by a gentle breeze'

'And the waters shimmer like silver; blown by a gentle breeze'

'And in the sky an angelic choir; like thunder from a mountain pass'




Thanks for sharing

Fenny

I think this is one of the most beautiful poems written about
Homecoming to the Lord. You have shown in this poem the
hope that we all eagerly wait for, to be with Him. Blessings.
