The Yearning



I dream of blue skies with never a cloudy day,

I long for the comfort of being a child once more at play.

Yet the moroseness of darkness has hid this dream from me.



Sweet smells of summer with the sounds of the bumble bee,

the warmth of the brilliant sunshine,

the dancing shadows from the leaves on the tree.

Fresh mowed grass, the sound of an old ice cream churn.

Little things they are …I know

but how my soul for them does yearn.

Beautiful nostalgic poem Allen! You will be seeing those scenes before long! If spring is at hand can summer be far behind!Take care!

Reviewed by Peter Paton 2/8/2006
You have me yearning for these special, magical memories of childhood Allen now, with this mellow and wistful composition !
We have our fond memories and dreams forever, we can never lose them, and we can bring them back out again when ever we want !
Marvellous pen !
Be strong in the Lord my friend !

I used to do a bit of yearning toward that end also, but I suppose reality has closed in on me and I accept life as is these days. Good, nostalgic poetry.
