The Baron's Late Night Walk


The Baron's Late Night Walk Under the glow of street lamps and heavy evening mist , The Baron's late night walk he never can resist . The distant clack of shod hooves on brick and cobblestone , He treads slowly with his thoughts as he walks all alone . For a time he seeks to free himself , from his bonds , his things , and even wealth . The fortress of granite walls and towers he leaves behind , And escapes for just a short while to ease his troubled mind . His whole life he's been imprisoned by things that were his father's things , Living by the sayings and ways of ancestors' past that clipped his wings . He knows he must change as he walks through the night , He knows not yet how but he must try with all his might . What good has he done with all that he now owns , He sits inside all day as he shivers and groans . There in the alleyways are the decrepid and poor , It bothers him so that it eats at his core . Why do I pass by them as if they're not there ..... Am I just so afraid to show that I care ? Perhaps I can help them to see the right way , To greet them and teach them while it is yet day ?!! I will break off these shackles and walk in the sun ..... And shower them with truth and hope until the work's done . Dale Robert Hopstetter
