A New Beginning...

'An Ode To Solitude'

Happy the man, whose wish and care
A few paternal acres bound,
Content to breathe his native air,
In his own ground.

Whose heards with milk, whose fields with bread,
Whose flocks supply him with attire,
Whose trees in summer yield him shade,
In winter fire.

Blest! who can unconcern'dly find
Hours, days, and years slide soft away,
In health of body, peace of mind,
Quiet by day,

Sound sleep by night; study and ease
Together mix'd; sweet recreation,
And innocence, which most does please,
With meditation.

Thus let me live, unseen, unknown;
Thus unlamented let me dye;
Steal from the world, and not a stone
Tell where I lye.

By: Alexander Pope 

Solitude to some appears as a lonely,deserted and not so interesting state of being..But  to me it is one of the most precious and creative time in one's life.In my Solitude,i can dream of anything and i get enough colours to paint those dreams.This blog is dedicated to this state of being called SOLITUDE... where many solitaires have coloured their the form of what we call as odes or poems!
