Our little Haven

When I was just a little girl
With mind as always, in a whirl
Me and my cousin, we would roam
Far, far away from my sweet home

We'd make our way to some rocks we knew
All covered by green moss, we two
Oh it was such a magic place
And left huge smiles upon my face

To us it was a fairyland
With imagination vast and grand
We both saw fairies, little elves too
Dancing daintily as they do

When that time came, we had to leave
Both our little hearts would grieve
We'd leave that haven, her and me
Our minds brim filled with memories

So we went back to normalcy
And though it made us both unhappy
We knew that soon we'd go back there
And see those we folk everywhere

Hi again dear lady this brings back memories of my childhood, we had a boating yacht club near us, and a place we called the island. It was a wild preserve area. So my three friends and I would go their and pretend also just like you and your childhood friend. I love your imagery you and Peter have this in common at least in this write, the memory of enchantment is wonderful here in your work. Nicely done again lady, I love the magic in this thank you for sharing such a special memory cheri

Oh how great! what a fun place to discover. Never forget the enchantment in which little eyes see, we can find a world of fantasy, even though we are grown up, through our poems and our childlike hearts, lovely poem Vera I am so glad to read your words :)
