There is no footpath to follow
From the cottage to the brook.
Noone goes there.  Not since childhood
Have I wandered down to look.

From the doorway I can still hear crickets.
It looks closer, somehow smaller too.
I know where the turtles like to swim.
I can catch frogs, one will be for you.

Don't look back
Until our shoes and socks are off.
Take my hand. 
I can show you where to walk.
I will tell you all my secrets
If you like.
When we're barefoot
It's much easier to talk.

I'm glad that you
Could come along with me,
To sit here
Where the water takes its bend.
I've always loved it here
All by myself.
It's just as lovely being with a friend.

This was so lovely Katy, brought back a few wonderful memories, beautiful,

Katydid, this was absolutely splendid. Robert Frost would be proud. And he is my all time favorite poet. Poems like these really take me away. Let me quote to you one of his poems that you might have read.

The Pasture by Robert Frost

I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long.--You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long.--You come too.

Katydid, for me, you have presented a pure moment of poetic synergy. I guess you really DID didn't you?

Dear Katy, This is absolutely beautiful and the imagery, mesmerising.You have written it in a style that I love..gentle, lilting, conversational and with subtle rhyme. Our heads were in similar places yesterday:)

Oh Katy I love this, I have one such place, so much like this, of childhood delight etched forever in my memory, your poem made me long for just one more visit there.

I love going back like this. and it is true it was "bigger then" everything seems so much smaller now then how we remember it. but the kicker was the last stanza. God I cant believe how good that was
"I've always loved it here
All by myself.
It's just as lovely being with a friend." Magnificient. I was there.

As a boy, frogs meant fireworks and the two didn't mix, but I do believe if we were to go down to the brook today, I could resist the temptation, of at least the frog. Love ya,
Reviewed by Patrick Talty 8/1/2003
Enchanting and deceptively simple. Its simplicity, its images of nature and its seductive tone make this poetic invitation impossible to resist at any level.

I enjoyed your nature walk
Peaceful place......
