Final Rest - Villanelle

Final Rest

The stream which flows through Winter's forest
A liquid cold to quench the thirst
Travelers stop here to rest

On their journey, a hiker's quest
Adventurers believe they have been versed
On the stream which flows through Winter's forest

They come in hordes to stomp the dust
And fly into danger headfirst
Travelers stop here to rest

Each man believes himself the ablest
But none of them have traversed
The stream which flows through Winter's forest

Explorers wander through the thickets
Crediting themselves to be the first
Travelers to stop here for rest

Every one meets the end, even the fiercest
When men find themselves immersed
In the stream which flows through Winter's forest
Travelers end here, at rest
