I hear the echoes through the trees

Life’s shadows move with each new breeze

Old voices carry loud and clear

And fall upon the listening ear.

The book has closed the story ends

And bids farewell to all our friends

To leave one nothing more to say

Ere we are forced to look away.

But let us go in peace and calm

Believing one must do no harm

Remembering those days of yore

And all of paradise before !

My heart flies high on silvered wings

As I embrace rememberings

For all on earth I have not seen

And places that I haven’t been.

Like memories forever lost

It matters not whate’er the cost

Some visions I will never know

Are those that I choose to forego !

Now I have lived quite a long time

In varied places and other clime

And learned that one must try to fit

Into each spot that’s part of it.

When but a child, the horse and cart

Is how our travel had its start

Next came the Ford all black and square

While in the rear its trunk was there.

Those skinny tires were truly sad

I cannot count the flats we had

Oh for those days that are long gone

Sweet memories my heart dwells on !

The moment that I rise from bed

Old memories do fill my head

I am back home when I was small

And dad is whistling in the hall.

 

Mom’s hanging clothes upon the line

The wind is crisp, the day is fine

The children shreiking in the yard

Makes hearing conversation hard.

 

While Nana’s praying in her room

Pop’s sweeping sidewalks with his broom

The smell of onions fills the air

As dinner waits to be prepared.

 

My world gets smaller day by day

As those I love all pass away

And will to me this legacy

They bide with me in memory !

Seems all that is left of the life I once knew

Are old photographs and a mem’ry or two !

 

A WASTE OF TIME ( 2016 ) 2016/10/27

When I was young and just a lass

I found a lovely bead of glass

Its color was the purest gold

The shape was bevelled and quite old.

 

I’d often thought from whence it came

And did its owner have a name

How foolish now as I recall

It hid amongst the leaves that fall.

 

But such a girl I was back then

I thought about it not again

For beads of glass without a home

Are objects of  forgotten tome.

 

We cannot find the rest of it

And only have the smallest bit

‘Twould be a waste of time and care

To seek whatever once was there !

Why can’t I remember or recall

All those precious times when I was small

When I sat upon my daddy’s knee

As he held me tight and talked to me ?

These memories are melting away

Just like my life, drip by drip each day

Oh what I’d give to capture it all

Sweet memories from when I was small !
