When Was I.... - Poem by Kathleen HarriganRoss

When was I a loner walking down the street,
tipping my black hat to everyone I meet?

When was I a poor girl, sitting on a log,
trying to catch my little brother a green bull frog?

When was I a writer, writing in my book,
Finding things to write about with every glance I took?

When was I a flower swaying in the wind,
Being stepped on by all those who sinned?

When was I? .....
