 once upon a time

Remembering sights and sounds of long ago
my memory drifts, to old laneways and hedgerows.
honeysuckle, primroses, blackbirds trilling
their sweet songs in to lazy days.
Scrambling around the farmers feet as he sweeped
his scythe, cutting the corn readying it for the miller.
sheaves binded with a single stalk of corn.
Fields of collapsed gold. Time passes, things change.
Shire horses noble and strong, straining to pull 
orange coloured carts loaded with hay, memories prevail
off those singular moments, lying atop the hay
passing time on an erstwhile summer day.
it seems only yesterday though
Memories like the fields, lie fallow in my mind, waiting
for the touch of time to urge me once again to
wander old laneways, past hedgerows laden with honeysuckle.
