‘Did our voices once travel through the telephone lines across the field?’ & ‘We climb the hill together, we fall together (we then climb together again)’ from volume 36 – ‘As others fell away, We kept walking’

A couple of poems from Volume 36 – read the full collection at: poetjordan.co.uk/volume-36


Did our voices once travel through the telephone lines across the field?

Did our voices once travel through the telephone lines across the field?
for hours and hours we spoke down the line and we did not wonder where the words went
from telephone to telephone we didn’t know how our words got to one another
all we knew is that our words were all that we needed one another needed to hear

I look at the telephone line as I catch my breath upon the hill I start to wonder
if our words ever made it this way past the hill and down the lane
did the hill and the lanes hear our words as well as we spoke for hours upon hours
ever wondering if they could tell me how the words I spoke got to you from me

The words we spoke I can still hear to this day but as the wind blows the words are swept away
how the hills must have listened to our words and knew what love there was in each and every word
yet never did they tell a soul as the words that were are forever for the people they were between

To this day however I do not know if the words made it this way past the trees and through to the views
in some way I would like to think so and the words of love would have been here
for the the words we spoke were as beautiful and glorious as the land that the telephone line goes across

If I followed the telephone line to where it went across the land and over hills far and wide
would I find you at the end if it or even the words that I spoke to you in a giant heap on the floor?
looking back and over the hill comes the rain the heavy clouds have threatened with all day
the walk to find those lost words would have to wait for now and let the mind wander a little bit more.


We climb the hill together, we fall together (we then climb together again)

Coopers Hill, Robinswood Hill or Churchdown Hill
physically we walk together to fill our lungs
with the air we breathe to be side by side
each walk is a journey together and like life we walk as one

We climb through the struggles helping eachother day by day
when we fall, we fall together, only to stand back up
brush ourselves down and hold each other and climb once more

By climbing together we learn how strong we are together
and when we aren’t strong enough we help each other to get to the top
a few words of encouragement or a gentle push on the back
it might just take to be the strength that the other one needs

Hand in hand or mind over matter
what does matter is that we are there for each other to get up and over that hill
through thick and thin we stand strong to go forwards in what we do

Life together may be like walking through a mountain range
but we know there will always be greater views and greater moments together
as we climb and enjoy what life has to offer us as we travel together.
