The Undiscovered Country, Pages 46 & 47

Gary Hart (California, United States) on 9 November 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

I'm off to Yosemite and then Southern Utah. While I'm away I'll share images and poetry from my book, The Undiscovered Country. Enjoy!


Petals, Amy Lowell


Life is a stream
On which we strew
Petal by petal the flower of our heart;
The end lost in dream,
They float past our view,
We only watch their glad, early start.

Freighted with hope,
Crimsoned with joy,
We scatter the leaves of our opening rose;
Their widening scope,
Their distant employ,
We never shall know. And the stream as it flows
Sweeps them away,
Each one is gone
Ever beyond into infinite ways.
We alone stay
While years hurry on,
The flower fared forth, though its fragrance still stays.

Lovely contrasts here and I love the water patterns. Just watching moving water is therapy enough and photographing the movement makes you aware of the lovely design and also the power of the rushing river.
