My frozen mind disappears
On a riverside view.
Through thicket and trees
I see Rosemary and the dreamers.

It’s just like it was,
That photograph,
So long ago.

Wisdom flowers in the great search.
The dreamers, my friends, dance, smile and cry.

This evening long ago I curl up tightly with her.
- A fair night sky on an evening of stars.
Rosemary, we see it all.

Those friends, the dreamers,
They dream sunshine, the evening breeze.

From the trees I catch a photograph.
It’s just like it was, so long ago.
This night the dream begins again.

I fall and I stagger.
The way to this bonfire’s worn.
We all travel this path.
Eventually in darkness we all fall!

The bright light, the lapping flames.
I touch them.
Even in the distance there is return.

My friends, there is no such thing as growing old.
Life continues day by day
I call all bluffs in the bonfire night.

Life! Life! I surrender at your feet.
Cajoled by fairies,
I dig at your ragged heart.

The fresh air hits me hard.
I unfold into being.
The butterfly, the evening breeze,
Farewell, we all must depart.

So long ago.
It’s just like it was.
That photograph.

Those friends, the dreamers,
They dream sunshine, the eternal flower.

"Life! Life!... " My dear Oisin.. this begins my favorite verse of my absolute favorite of all the poems I've read of yours. Your pen was like a spoon, feeding me mind pictures... but also, a learning of you, dear poet. I think I would have known an Irishman wrote this, were there no name attached... it has the melancholy, the captivating enchantment of the dreamer and the mixture of musing and honesty. I was rapt!

You have framed a memory very well with this poem. More than a Kodack Moment for your readers can sense the warmth and love that oozes with your prose. Happy to read your verses again. I've been away too long.
