The Great Catch Up Day - Poems #24-26

These three were also written in the park. It's not easy writing good poems after a month!
There's a hill
Where travellers go, seeking truth
I have Wicklow
(Following the 2,4,6,8,2 word pattern)
When memories have faded
I'll paint Wicklow on the wall
Pretend the secrets it contains are all mine -
Rilke had it right, with his ideas of love.
"For holding on comes easily; we do not need to learn it.”
The night transforms it, it seeps through the walls.
Laying alone with thoughts for company
Love the other side of Earth,
A young poet waits for letters
Disclaimer: These are poems I won't be spending a lot of time on. As such, I don't expect perfection (neither do I need it). However feel free to tell me what you think about them, and if you enjoy certain lines more than others - I'm quite OK with constructive criticism!
