Following Walden

Walden went to the woods
And so will I,
To watch the time and birds
Just float me by.

I will sleep on a tree
Or in some cave,
And with my life the way
To heaven pave.

I will write songs on trees
With twigs and nuts,
And drink the sap oozing
From the bark’s cuts.

I will bathe in rivers
Lashing with pebbles,
And in doing so create
Rippling rebels.

I will dig, I will fill
And lie on earth.
I will hide, I will walk
And savour my mirth.

One day I will pass on
Across the cloud,
While my body lies in
A moist leafy shroud.

Is being a dreamer a precondition to being a poet ;)
The poem reflects one's desire for sylvan peace...it begins to weave a dream which is broken a little too soon I feel...if dream is that u intend to portray and not the breaking of it u should weave it like it could never come to an end...:)

Just as others said, this one needs more effort. You need to go on with the rhythm...
