One Peaceful Afternoon

Sometimes there are songs sung,
     sometimes dancing in the street,
Once in awhile the blind
     fall in love with those they meet.
Memories will linger,
     memories will call the tune,
Sometimes on the breezes
     the old music comes too soon.

Ladies plant the tulips
     in-between last years old rows,
Then feel the sands of time
     slide so softly through their toes.
Blossoms will arrive soon
     with the season's passing days,
They follow shadows quick
     moving through the sunshine's rays.

Lovers walk through a park
     underneath the skies of blue,
Hand in hand, down the path,
     past the places they once knew.
Children ride upon swings
     which move back and forth in rhyme,
They be carried through dreams,
     taken to another time.

Some follow the footprints
     that had been left in the snow,
Some stay just where they are,
     they have nowhere else to go.
I myself wake from sleep
     and peek slowly o’er the dune,
Wondering where she’s gone
     on this peaceful afternoon.
