Mayday Memories

Written by: john freeman

As a child at play In the merry month of May Wallowing the hours away As one would surely say Lying neth old sweet gum tree… sipping a glass of sassafras tea A pork chop tied to my neck you see… possibly the dog will play with me The sky is my dominion galore… Blue infinity of divinity and more A thunder head rumbles with a roar Childhood imaginations explore Ole Brownie at my side Constant companion abide The heart of hog dog inside Now roams heaven with pride One day my own Adamantine Will see again this dog of esteem Many frayed earthly forms I’ve seen And blossoms of May in beauty’s esteem by John Moses Freeman
