MIRACLE OF CHILDHOOD REGAINED

MIRACLE OF CHILDHOOD REGAINED



Snow  - my dream  miracle, 
To me has always called, never  cold. 
Serenely reposing, softly refreshing
Like  flowing water over a low  weir. 
Submerging  sharp corners;  edges are softened.
New world, renewed, unspoiled. Pure tabula rasa.  
Long-sought Eden garden emerging
 
From the child-dreams I was forbidden to enter
By the sentries:  teachers, church, ancient granny, 
By cold forces choking  my green growth  -
Dowdy fields, old trees, dirty walls  
Now freshly-baptised to pure brightness;
Factory  dumps, rusted hulks, rows of soulless cellars,
Now mantled white in fairytale shapes from  a Christmas card.

I  feel  small  again in snow,  always did:
Impossible become possible:  childhood regained.
