In the Back Yard

While watching the stars way up high,
my thoughts drift to another time,
sleeping beneath a clear summer sky,
four sisters, all in childhood's prime.

My thoughts drift to another time,
another place, where innocence was bred,
four sisters, all in childhood's prime,
talking and giggling as we climbed into bed.

Another place where innocence was bred,
when the night was dark and the stars shone bright,
talking and giggling as we crawled into bed,
counting the shooting stars in the sky at night.

When the night was dark, and the stars shone bright,
after a long and exhausting play day,
counting the shooting stars in the sky at night,
all our cares, just up and flew away.

After a long and exhausting play day,
sleeping beneath a clear summer sky,
all our cares, just up and flew away,
while watching the stars way up high.

    Beautiful memories, Catie! Are you and your sisters still close? This is an excellent Pantoum, it flows together seamlessly.... I love how each repeated line takes on a different meaning in the following stanzas, this is not easy to do so well! Great job, and really sweet. Big hugs

    Very sweet memories.....cannot blame anyone retracing moments in time, especially when the recollection is so pleasant. // paul
