Little Seeds

The little seeds that were planted
within our childhood spring
make us what we are today
and sometimes make our words sing.
The little seeds that germinated
as years passed and we grew
while in our youth they budded
before our experiences made them flower.
The little seeds of our childhood spring
that blossomed in our adult summer
to radiate even more brightly
in our autumn years.

    Yes, your words remind of so much. Sometimes I feel that little child still inside wake up, and tremble with joy because something so wonderful has happened. The little one still becomes very excited; while the adult seems to watch warily, from a distance, but also in enjoyment. Thanks for reminding how very important childhood will always be for us.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
