Pantoum

When We Walked those wetland Ways

I loved to walk Those Wetland tracks
So very many years ago
For nature did my mind attract
Flowers, and trees they made me glow

So very many years ago
I loved natures sweet mystery
Flowers, and trees they made me glow
They did keep me in ecstasy

I loved natures sweet mystery
I loved the parrots all around 
They did keep me in ecstasy
Such sweetness on these trails I found

I loved the parrots all around
I loved the lizards and the frogs
Such sweetness on these trails I found
I used to wander with my dogs

I loved the lizards, and the frogs
We’d walk for miles beside the lake
I used to wander with my dogs
We’d often see a tiger snake

We’d walk for miles beside the lake
Sometimes it could be rather hot
 we’d often see a tiger snake
The heat could scorch us Quite a lot

Sometimes it could be rather hot
Oh how I loved to walk those days
That heat could scorch us quite a lot
Bu me I loved to walk these ways

Oh, how I loved to walk those days
But now my legs are getting stale
I really loved to walk those ways
Guess me I’m just a worn out male

Enjoyed reading your work. I don't walk beside the creek or off into the woods anymore. Sometimes ride down in there on the gator with someone in the family. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara

Hi Sara Once I walked those track but now dizzy spells make me clumsy and I fall over very often. Still I have my memories, and I am happy to sit in the garden and hear the birds and sit amidst the flowers. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter

Hi Peter, I enjoy the Pantoum form. You did it justice with this well written piece. It was like veiwing a lovely painting that came to life because of the way you used your skillful pen. I for one really enjoy your nature writes. Excellent job. Happy New Year's to you and loved ones:-) Alexis

Hi caren. I have dizzy spells and have the habit of falling over, so vera begs me not take chances. I guess that this is old age catching up with me. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter
