Recollections from Childhood

A cool breeze blows
On a fresh Spring day

The cicada buzz
I feel calm

The sun shines bright
Warming my skin

Robins fly above
Circling me

The heavenly smell of tulips
Wafts through the air

A lone bumble bee
Buzzes near my head

I feel the cool grass
Beneath my feet

I taste honeysuckle
Mild and sweet

Cars rumble past
Their engines humming

My sisters and I
Play Red Rover

A sudden soft rain
Makes me feel whole

Our tiger lilies sway
In the swift wind

I drift asleep
Dreaming of Paradise
