Something Wonderful :-)
A wondrous event has occurred.
A 'door', which had been closed these three years,
has opened in my mind. (What joy!)
I hesitate to speak of it aloud,
thus the whisper,
for fear I might find it closing again.
That place which holds the thousands
of children's songs and poems,
word perfect and full of fun,
which were my stock in trade,
has opened a crack and a choice few
have found their way back,
they bubble to the surface and fly free.
I have not spoken of this particular loss
but have found it unbelievable,
have lain in the darkness, searching
for rhyme or story for the telling,
for a particular song to delight or cheer.
They would not come to me.
three long years and more.
Beauty. Loveliness. Simple songs.
Those were the rocks upon which
I would break.
The mind is very protective
of the heart.
