Fields Of Green

Post  RichieO on Wed Jul 04 2012, 10:12

Fields of Green

Back in the fields of green I go
Back to those summer days I go
To my childhood lost in dreams
Long sunny days past so slow
Now back in those fields I go.

Life is so short and Cruel I know
A Cousin now lost I try to find
Amongst these fields of green
But gone is he to heaven, you see
To be with his Mum and Dad.

Our Terry was one of a famous five
Us kids were friends for life
We roamed the fields of green
Along the paths of childhood dreams
Can we not forget those times so serene
Remember our childhood days with glee.

Each summer day was adventure you see
Not knowing where we go this day
How happy, can one be, has we play today
Out in these fields of green for us today
Along the river bank to the bridge, we see
To the railway line not far from here.

We lay in the grass of green for us to see
Along the track comes the train of steam
It whistles at us has it passes so fast to see
A wave to the engine and passengers you see
Oh happy the times in these fields of green.

How time passes so quickly and our hearts
Become broken at the loss of a lifelong friend
But we will remember those days so far gone
It was only yesterday that we spoke of old
So remember the times we spent so well
For I shall remember thee for evermore.

What now for the other famous five
We but lost one Brother this day
For now we are but four
We mourn our Brother lost this day
And hope and pray that our brother
Will soon be in the fields of green.

Thanks Girls, Terry more like a Brother to me than a Cousins are brothers and sisters in Frome. Oh he will be missed, he was a character and a very active sort of chap. He loved playing football, rugby and cricket.....RIP Terry

Lovely Rich, lovely indeed!

Thanks Bev, I so do remember our times we spent roaming the fields of Frome. Alas, most of all those fields have been taken over by new housing estates the whole landscapes I remembered have gone. However, they still remain inside the back of my head my own photograph gallery. sunny
