Autumn Landscape, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Autumn LandscapeThomas Moran, Autumn Landscape (1867)

Autumn Landscape

Being in the late autumn of my years,
Pushing off to start the final journey,
Without shedding of any fearful tears,
Or desirous to enter life’s tourney.

The river is calm as far as the bend,
Providing necessary confidence.
After that unknown what Nature shall send,
That decision belongs to Providence.

There is not a choice for what is in store,
Shall stay the course whatever it may be,
For once beginning there will be no shore.
Should the waters be rough I make no plea.

Through many turns the river has been long
To the end I ask His help to be strong.
