Sublime Climb to Renewal

Tanaga Tuesday

There is hope for tomorrow
But work to be done today
With some lingering sorrow
Amidst the battlefield fray

And we will make no pretense
Of attitudes quite sublime
While walking thru forest dense
As upward, onward we climb

We do not know the ending
Only that it will be good
While we are slow ascending
Into renewed childhood

Note: The Tanaga is written in quatrains with seven syllables per line and originally with a rhyme scheme of  a a a a,  b b b b,  c c c c,  but in contemporary composition may be  a b a b,  c d c d,  etc. or any other consistent rhyme scheme.
