    Long Lost Family

    Skip through the lane
    Roar like a dandelion
    Blow wishes into the wind.
    Here they come
    That merry band
    It's all just cricket in the field
    We fought the good fight
    With sticks, stones
    Conkers and string.
    Now we can sing
    I'm the king of the castle
    There is no dirty rascal
    Because on this day in spring
    We all win

    Hi, Delta,
    Enjoyed your poem. Whoever the "dirty rascal" may be, Im glad he has been conquered.

    This is a beautiful poem, Delta, and technically magnificent. What I really liked was the implicit sadness that hangs between the title and the verses. Somethings just can't be said out loud. A few can still be heard. Thanks.

    Seems a happy poem to me. Inspired by your trip back to your homeland I guess. Good to see you posting again. JB

    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
