Mine Youth of Dreams

Mine Youth of Dreams

By John Evans

Poetry that changed my heart –

Words of a metaphorical new start,

To swim thy depths of a thirsty soul,

And find thy spirit, now of whole.

Inebriated by mine childhood stare,

Of a Piney scent from a light summer air,

Though risk thy nights of a bitter cold,

Thy foreign lands share what’s told;

A forest lake of starry dreams,

Tell me more of thy long, sap filled and tallest trees –

Thy heavens are with every meadow breeze,

And with thy start from thy new dawn of man,

Hints of every query sent forth to make a stand,

Amongst thy great cathedrals of thy woods,

My God, my God, to stand naked before thee of earth and stone,

To give you thanks and praise, a child of nature, quite not alone;

For in this giving you know mine good,

And through Thy giving I knew Thou would!
