Memories - Poem by Donald Cochrane
I remember: golden hair flying untethered.
Pale face of innocence,
Slim form of youth, vibrant as a spring morning.
I remember: heart aching, churning,
without speech, fearful of rejection.
I remember: hair still golden, restrained.
Calm face of beauty,
Slender form of woman, lovely as a summer day.
I remember: time passing, slowly, swiftly.
Heart firming, steadying.
Body stretching, growing, and the confidence of man
I remember: walking slowly, quietly,
Body taut as catgut on a warriors bow.
Now I sit in autumn, body slowing, aging.
Heart full, content.
and remembering, remembering, remembering.
(Lake Cowichan, BC.1995)
