Ode To Childhood

Tender petals of youth wither and fade

Stinging the soul with regret

Sharp penance of years

A yearning too deep for tears

A token of repentance

Times short pleasure to take

Youthful mirth vanishes away

    Memories of my youthful days! How it does seem as if from a dream. Time does move so very quickly looking back. Wonderful poem! Thanks Lori.
