Spring in the Air

Post  RichieO on Mon Mar 26 2012, 13:38

Along the towpath and across the bridge
walk two lovers, hand in hand.
Their carefree glances for all to see
remind me of how it used to be.
No worries for a time when one is in love.

Onwards down the path they go
and over the style to field beyond.
With the early morning mist of a
Spring Morn, doth swallow them
and then they are gone.

I look back Along the path, and upon
the river, I do but sight two Swans,
two ducks and Kingfishers taking in
the morning sun their mating calls
Are heard by all upon this springs
Crisp and comfort morn.

Oh I wish I was in my youth again,
in love and being carefree
like the two lovers I've seen.
My past has been well spent,
for which I now can reflect,
upon the joy and sight of a
new spring morning forever more.

Rich, I've never seen this fast a blossoming of a poet before. You're work grows better by the week, deeper by the day. I'm so happy to have you here, sharing your adventurous ride of a poet's exploration. Wonderful poem, my friend! I'm well please with your progress:-)

Aw thanks Bev, its nice to remember ones loves and Losses reflect back at the ones that got away. Reflect back and try to piece together what went wrong. How wonderful to be young again.
Still we can only hope our children will blossom and grow and be happy for evermore.

Richie, one of the marks of a poet is when he or she writes in such a way that the reader can recreate the images the poet uses. Sir, you've done well. Your poem is a delight to read and I enjoyed the walk along the tow path. Keep up the good work. Ditto what Bev said.

Thank you both Bev and Mike, my moods change from time to time and I have been thinking along a different mood of writing. One can only experiment with different topics and see what comes out. Your comments are held in high regard by me/
Thanks

Very touching. Ah, for youths return. Still, we could enjoy life's path we travel now. It's all in our mindset. Loved the poem.
