let us recall  the best effects of style
when those who listen know how best to hear
and do not injure those who hold most dear
the hidden blessings of the final mile
rather they wish the urgent to beguile
expecting that the best might engineer
sounds that will please the most discerning ear
and lead once drooping eyes to shine and smile
the age of wonder has no fixed return
but comes upon us as we seem to find
not a changed world but a remarked abode
the home that we have loved for which we yearn
that seemed so hidden for time out of mind
appear before us as we climb the road

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-11-12
as we climb the road by *FledgistThe rhyme scheme is a refreshing take on how to rhyme and the message the poet sends bleeds through beautifully in every single line. ( Suggested by Nichrysalis and Featured by inknalcohol )

This is absolutely beautiful; I knew when I started watching your work that you were very talented, and this piece is a fine example. :)

Though, I have two points to make, not glaring errors, but it seems that there's an extra space in the first line between "recall" and "the" and while this does not pose much of an issue when reading, it's aesthetically distracting when looking at the poem. The second to last line also appears to have a typo or a missing word: "hidden for time out of mind" — is this meant to be read as "hidden from time out of mind" or "hidden for a time out of mind"

Unless I'm not reading that line correctly?

Very great work sir. I can see myself rereading this and still getting the same feelings I had when I first discovered it.

"for" is correct. It's idiomatic in British English.
