Silent Sentinel...A Trijan Refrain

Silently the sentinel stands

ancient limbs like strong arms 

peace found beneath his loving hands 

comfort attained not harms 

in that meadow so warm and sweet 

generations laid at his feet

in that meadow

in that meadow

played in the midst of summer heat

Silently the sentinel stands

aged boughs tempt divine dreams 

amidst sprawling acres of land 

games made of childish schemes 

reveling in brilliant sunlight

climbers head to the highest height

reveling in

reveling in

aspiring to take winged flight

Silently the sentinel stands

antique branch creak with age

price for meeting youthful demands

grow harder on this sage

on lonesome knoll he watches still

waiting with graceful whippoorwill

on lonesome knoll

on lonesome knoll

for more reveries to fulfill

Author's Notes:
My first attempt at a Trijan Refrain. I was introduced to this form by Ken aka meaningless. It was a challenge, but it was fun.

I wasn't on the CP site back when this poem was published. As I read it now

it is very clear why it won the featured contest. Congratulations on a well deserved win.

Great job, Kym, I learned to do this from Ken, also. This is a real challenge and you met it, my friend.

I want to meet this guardian and watch my daughter poke

her head out the very top the way Bilbo Baggins did in Mirkwood forest

A wonderful use and presentation of this form.

peace ken
