Children's Dream - Poem by Clara Odelia Ciutara

I remember
The time when I was a child
With my friends together
And the dream about the world
Coloring our days
How I was impressed
By the blue sea
And the swimming fish
By the green leaves
And rising flowers

And now
If I remember it
It seems too far away
The dream of a sincere child
Which will never come

Will the world get gloomier?
As children’s dream got to vanish
Cause the world
Had given them suffering
Povert y
Can they keep on dreaming
When their life offers nothing?
Whereas children color the world

    This piece is about God’s gift to us the children. Just know that all is not lost because young people such as you will continue to remind us the importance of dreaming in color, and the importance of listening to the voice of our children. Furthermore, if we all were to subscribe to such pieces then we will honor and respect children dream. Great wisdom…10+++ (Report) Reply

    a really lovely poem Clara. Children are the future as you have portrayed in these well-crafted lines and their colourful presence is in marked contrast to all the horrible and cynical things we see around us everyday. We can learn a lot from children before they are destroyed by the ways of the world and you have captured this admirably in your thought-provoking verse. (Report) Reply

    I am reminded of Wordsworth.

    Whither is fled the visionary gleam?
    Where is it now, the glory and the dream?

    I would say, the poem is reflection on innocence by a mature mind.

    Hi Clara - This is a very powerful poem - the contrast between reality and the hope in our dreams - I score it a TEN. V 1 We do dream in colour and every colour has a significance BLUE is linked to Spirituality and Culture - both these elements are important and GREEN Sharing and balance which are the subject of your poem. V 2 If we Trust and Pray - Clara - our dreams will come true and our prayers will be answered. V 3 This is lovely - Children (all under 21) are the future of the World and they all add colour. In the UK we really care for all our Children and we do our best to support Children Worldwide. Well done Love in poetry - JOHN.. (Report) Reply
