You came and went again – it seems I wasn’t looking.
A single moment. I stopped and was hooked.
O’ across the country and to the next –
but there you were not. I would know, I Looked.
Clearing the way for Autumn already?
I sit and wonder why, all perplexed.
Fellow passengers look on and wonder,
I answer in loud thought – it’s not obvious?
We flock like birds, in nervous song,
Coarse clouds overhead hang ominous,
But hopelessly Hopeful we belong.
A Letter, a Word, a Page or a Name.
These adored books adorned by worlds yet unknown,
The smell of parchment hugs the musty air.
A home I feel I know so well. We flit.
Like castle explorers we trek, but where?
The Keep, the wall, or library to see what’s writ.
Stop. Breathe and say goodbye. A place of stone.
I wait and sit and wait, a school girl once more
drawn to the subtle stories of others.
Face full of make up and shoes that aren’t mine,
I am. But yet still am, somehow, another.
Eager to start; it’s clearly by design
Cameras and costumes and clapping awaits…
Awoken early I wiped my rain smeared glasses clear,
a polite nod, a stranger by the door,
We dashed, to follow the steps down below
Rushed words I see yet, do not hear or know.
To find our way we follow where they go.
An air of excitement, lingers, all a buzz.
Suddenly it’s there up ahead, we smile aghast yet with delight.
As impatient as the children we once were – we run
A towering spectacle, we beam bright
No default, or comparison it’s next to none
Worth the wait and what a sight!
A Glittering hue of Gold, Pink and Blue…
It’s true however, I hesitated and you were gone!
You played your part well and now you are done,
So Summer, we must part once more at Dawn
As I blink the morning from my eyes
I know I’ll not forget this one.
