Duluth Hillside

Duluth from wayside

 

Duluth Hilltop

(Quatrains with couplet)

.

.

Take me to a hill above Duluth,

And let me watch the color of the trees,

To feel the essence of universal truth,

As I watch as autumn leaves rustle in the breeze.

.
I’ll sit and contemplate the bountiful hills

Where I see the buildings far off in the bay,

At the jaded junction where emotion spills,

While Superior blends horizons further away.

.
This cathedral of catharsis sets my spirits free

When I look upon its tranquil dignity

That sets a current of vitalizing electricity for me

By the lake that the Ojibwa named “Gitchee Gumee.”

.
To feel the essence of universal truth,

Take me to a hill above Duluth,

.

Author Notes

One of my favorite spots


This poem is just two abab rhymed quatrains and one mono-rhymed stanza along with a closing rhymed couplet. No particular syllable count.


This photograph was gtaken by the author himself at the wayside rest just before you come into Duluth from the south.
