The Village Children

Oh, the day was bright and sunny
How the birds both chirped and sang
While the lads and merry lasses ran and played
On the hills their laughter echoed
O'er the lake their shouting rang
Vibrant joy upon their faces was displayed

Some were splashing in the shallows
Others yet were skipping rocks
While the rest were loudly tromping through the green
They appeared supremely happy
With the water in their locks
'Twas in all the merryest sight I've ever seen

All too soon the light was fading
They were surely loth to go
But the dinner bells were sounding far away
And before they ate their dinner 
They had chores to do, you know?
But they'd come again and play another day

    You are so good at writing bright, cheerful poems with the perfect meter to accent that cheer. This makes me miss being a child!

    Reminds me of days long ago in the little city park in my hometown. I can yet feel the dizziness created by the merry-go-round spinning so fast. That merry-go-round was old even then. Seems it might outlast ol' Jake. And take more memories when it goes..... Jake

    Beautiful scene from a simpler time or perhaps just one I have lost touch with. Thanks for painting this picture.
