Magical Moments
Starry, starry nights, moonbeams
all a ponderous delight.
Morning glories entwined in the
old garden gate, dew
on the budding, red roses too.
Fireflies in a mason jar, and
butterflies galore.
Dirt road sport, running bare
footed in the year of thirty eight.
Whistling Dixieland to beat the band.
On the Pomme de Terre river,
riding an old rubber inner tube
on a Sunday afternoon.
Bicycles, beautifully multicolored
marbles and a old tattered, hand-
me- down ball glove.       
Jawbreakers and a Mr. Goodbar,
those were the days before the big war.
Memories long gone but never forgotten,
a boyhood’s life…
 of yesteryear’s magical moments.
Jackie R. Kays
