Summer Fun

I recall days long departed When I was just a kid . . . O, how I loved Mother's garden I would run in the sun and play all day Down paths now vanished . . . I would lay spread-eagle on the scented grass An emerald carpet laid just for me I would creep amongst the shade trees And climb to the highest branches Where I would sit for hours and hours Listening to the birds twitter and dance I would pluck some blossoms Place them in a pickle jar for Mother And she would exclaim happily At what a delightful child I was . . . My childhood was full of happiness Watching the little birds play in the bird bath O, I remember it all so clear But no more, now the garden is but a thorny field And Mother has departed this realm And I . . . I grew up and found out that life is cruel That happiness and delight are rare gems indeed But . . . In my mind and solitude I am that skipping child again Written August 27, 2012 For the contest Summer Fun Sponsored by Craig Cornish

    Yes, I want to be that child again...I want to be in my past as well my friend! It was very special back in those days, things were very different back then! So free and fun, things were new, and I leaned so much! You have written a purely delightful poem Constance, I really love the tremendous glory behind everything you said! What a powerful piece, Great Work!!
