Days

Younger days, were greener days
Silver memories on the shelf
Yesterdays, in many ways
So wrapped up with myself
Saturdays, were laughing days
When time was still in wealth
Every day, that passed my way
Slipped on by in stealth

Now these days, I hang and graze
No longer pull the plough
So eyes may gaze on coming days
Not yet thrown in the towel
All those days, left in a haze
Wont come back, no how
So I say, come what may
It doesn't matter now

Any day that I can stay
No need to wear a frown
Sunny days or rainy days
Just simply hang around
Lazing days, embracing ways
To lay my trophies down
When my days, all pass away
My poems are where I'll be found

I really love this poem--and the direction you took with the contest theme. "Now these days . . . plough"--especially great lines. Janice

Thank you, nette. I would hope we would all like to know that future generations could some day read our poems and get to know who we were. We would have fulfilled our dream. Always really enjoy the visits. I think it would be nice to have a conversation with you sipping a nice cold glass of milk with chocolate chip cookies. Peace my friend:)

Thank you, Tim. Yes it is a somber poem and is best when read slow. I had it in the notes at top but took them out, I assumed everyone would figure that out. I appreciate your super kind comments. Peace my friend:)
