Boyhood Nostalgia

Waterfalls here and there sprout (A) From the bottom of the mountain (B) Monkeys and apes are gamboling (C) Comfortably, somewhere on the leafy soil (D) On trees top, snacking from the wild fruit (A) Gathered, seemed as they had a summit (A) Somewhere wavering on the tree (E) I were alone blatantly beside the pond (F) On the body of the botched trunk (G) Which were beside the spring water (H) That flew rhythmically in the middle of the forestry (E) Wending, looking good bye me and the place peacefully ( E) The nugget, pebble, and the sand was seen ( I) In the pure water lazed beneath the bottom ( J) Little fishes were swimming dreading nothing a hook (K) And I were not a cruel boy to show them a slash of bread (L) To trick and eat them for my hunger and fun ( I) Nature was delicious by itself why i did them stun (I) I had no girlfriend but I were loved a blossomed lass (M) She was my high school grade mate, so beautiful (N) A shy, not seen when she talk and play (O) With boys like me and teenagers (P) A virgin of the south Ethiopian of that epoch’s class (M) I were dreaming here beyond my memory mass (M) Alemseged’s Alphabetical Rhyming Scheme style Oh, my boyhood love had an agony of sagacity (Q) Wishing greedily day and night losing many sleeps (R) Being frail to say I love you snatched the aplomb (S) Observing in heart and mind surrendered without fighting (T) A different perspective on a dimension of beauty (Q) A yearning of having her, an itching of victory (Q) My childhood village, the forest, the mount, the cliff (U) The two lakes, Abaya and Chammo, God’s bridge ( V) They couldn’t told me how to get the bloomed aroma (W) They couldn’t helped me how to say I love you (X) But they whispered the song through wind that riff (U) By Knowing my secrets, searched from my heart’s shelf (U) Where are you now the un kissed flower of the ere (Y) The bud and bold, the desired scent as the Mexican dahlia (Z) I think now, the time is go on you were my potent age flare (Y) You are my boyhood nostalgia, as of a shadow of acacia (Z) May 29,2021
