A child during a summer morning

Once way back when 

in the cool summer morning 

Bright and early, dew still holding on 

A bed of tall grass surrounds the child gently 

A wire fence with vines and flowers creeping up 

reaching to hold on 

Kept between the puppy who welcomes the small hand 

So soft and fun, the child giggles 

Once way back when 

Ladybugs and butterflies awake with 

their friend the grasshopper, 

creeping on a blade of grass 

A caterpillar, to slow to play 

held, feeling it's fuzzy body then placed on 

a sunflower leaf 

A white feathery dandelion carefully plucked 

Eyes closed to make wish, watching feathers 

one by one 

float away with the wind 

Once way back when 

Lilacs and wild flowers picked from 

the root of their home 

Careful not to bother the fat bee who 

bends the stem over 

Running home, leaving the puppy behind the fence 

and the small creatures to play on their own. 

Watching mom putting the colorful surprise in a jar 

placing it on the kitchen table 

How pretty they look! 

Kissing the child on the head 

How wonderful this cool summer morning 

Once way back when
