Once Upon a Moments Time

Listen to poem:
Once Upon a Moments Time David J Walker Once I learned to walk I walked Once I learned to run I ran Once I learned to talk I talked Once Was when my life began Once I learned to read I read Once I learned to love I lost Once I learned to seek I said Once A penny paid the cost Once An hour past a day Once A flower fades Once An answer stopped to say Once The debt is paid Once Upon a time a clock Once A day to strike the chime Once A mountain now a rock Once A moment caught in time

Interesting and lovely verse, David. I enjoyed reading it. I also loved the way you used the word "once" to kick off each line. Masterful!
