TENDER YEARS for contest

                         FIRST MEMORIES

Curtains danced delighted
 from wayward autumn breeze
Running zigzag from the wall
Car riding  thrilled to see swift trees
Chasing me—unsuccessful--black and tall

My father’s bass-sweet voice 
calmed foreboding magic fears
My mother’s hands,
Brandished toddler tears

The world loved me, its Center-- 
so sung every new sprung leaf
to Never let  imagine
a sunset made of grief.

    Victoria - The wonder of it, to feel that initial world of innocence regained. Your last stanza is the sure summing up. Too long it takes to know we are not the center. love, Kathy

    What a delightful picture of the age and experience of it. "autumn breeze running zigzag" I can even see the wind. Enjoyed, John
