I remember being small


I remember being small,
a giant world I didn't feel ready for at all,


I remember all the hard lessons and rules,
feeling like adults treated us as fools,


I remember white wild flowers so tall,
collecting them roots and all-
(...and how they made my mother sneeze.)


I remember running wild and free,
until my dirty legs could barely carry me.


I remember being small,
and never once thinking I would wish for time to stall.

Thank you for reminding me of being small.

- This felt familiar, to be certain I googled it.
I did find a similar feeling poem...
that I remember, (Ha, thats it's name "I remember, I remember" by Thomas Hood)
I love it, you should go read it too,
I want to share the end of it here too :
" It was a childish ignorance,
But now ’tis little joy
To know I’m farther off from Heaven
Than when I was a boy."

The Knight Of Starlight


*****Knight Of Starlight*****


He rides in bravely glowing,
bringing his musky smell of dusk,
galliant in the nightfall,
he carries the spirit of camelot,
with his horse of white stardust,
scattering sleep on young eyes,

He wraps himself in comets tail armor,
to begin a daring fight,
to knock away the darkness,
catch each falling star,
and battle in the sky,


He checks the strings that hold the stars,
and blows blue icy breath upon the clouds,
his powerful steed of white stardust,
whistles to the trees,
horse breath

When the sun approaches they paint the sky,
then ride past the purple~pink clouds,
into the blazing orange morning sun.
