Do You Remember

Do you remember the creek you and I meandered with. . . those many years ago? Its half-forgotten end has now run dry and vanished like the ferns that used to grow along the border of the glade we two had happily discovered, claimed as ours, and even then, I guess we somehow knew that time was fleet; we picked sweet wild flowers, made friendship garlands. Sunny daffodils were blooms you liked the best. I liked the blue. And then we raced each other up small hills, lay laughing in green grass, friends ever true! I don't run now! I spread a blanket and weave yellow rings, remembering my friend.

It is strange Andrea how we still visit those distant times and places and dwell on the fleeting nature of friendship and time. Nicely done

Expertly written, friendship remembrance sonnet. Congrats, Andrea. I really like this one (except for the double spaces). Also, what do you mean by weave yellow rings? :-)

also the rings can refer to the garlands that we were picking the flowers for.

the yellow rings are to make daisy chains! i guess it's done with the stems so they are not that yellow but if they still had the daisy heads on them they would be yellow colored!
