  • At the top of Joppenberg



    At the top of Joppenberg mountain, the Rondout River streams.

    Off the river the sun reflects, radiant November beams.

    As part of the Rosendale rail Trail, the Trestle provides great views.

    All these years I've lived here, this spot I never knew.

    As my eyes pan 360, the mountains against sky blue,

    I can see and smell the smoke, from a neighbor's fireplace flue.

    Quaint Victorian homes are nestled along the river.

    So lucky in love, with this view from above, without November's shiver.

    The air is comfy and calm, no wind on the mountain peak.

    I thank the good Lord for giving me this view, there's nothing I need to tweak.

    A time to be alone and revel in nature's glory.

    A simple hike to the top of my town, created this Rosendale story...

          You've really captured the setting and your feelings about it, Bobby. I relate to the inspiration and sense of perspective you derive from this wonderful perch. Makes me want to get back to my home town, and take in the view from the high bluff above it. Kudos!

              A place called Broker's Nose, up above a city named Wollongong. I shared a lengthy poem (150 lines) about it early on in my RhymeZone membership; I think it is way too long to sustain anyone's interest but mine

            grant hayes, where to begin? The first thing I want to comment on is how few poets and members of the zone commented on your as Mhenry commented "masterpiece". It is a write that is of this earth but not constricted by time. It transcends time and will still be a masterpiece a thousand years from now. It takes diligence and commitment to savor what you've expressed in this write. I will come back to it again and I believe it should be dissected in parts for best results in comprehension. Great share Grant!

              Thank you, Bobby, for such kind and generous praise; I am glad this piece resonated with you, really glad, because your own poem here shows such an affinity for landscape and sense of place. The photo is outstanding, by the way; the ray of sun and the silver light of the river are beautiful.
