Watching Clouds a Swap Quatrain

Where I once sat, another dreams
Of life and all its crazy schemes;
Some drifting clouds to wonder at -
Another dreams where I once sat.

Still living there, that child in me,
A barefoot boy and fancy free
Whose secrets he will always share,
That child in me, still living there.

To distant shores, on ships I sailed
Where pirates told their magic tales
Of treasure chests and ancient lore,
On ships I sailed to distant shores.

Now watching clouds another boy
Is captain of his fleet deployed;
Imagination's gift endows
Another boy now watching clouds.

    I HAD to put this in my top three because the theme is one that I particularly enjoy in poetry. Wonderful message and with your usual flowing style I love so much. I think people get disappointed when they score lower with me, but they just don't understand how important good meter is for me!! Congrats, Craig.

    Oh Craig, I love this nostalgic has a charm that reminds me of Robert Louis Stevenson.. I don't know why, but his endearing poems of childhood popped into my head. Love this!
