Daisies Bloom In Autumn's Wood - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

In my image I perceive
The young child of mystery
As the wind combs gentle my long hair
To innocence flows a care-free air
And time's changes clearly show
As the shadows cast their eerie glow
For rainbows are wrought by His hands
The Sandman's kiss has left it's sand
Wrinkles of cause as years will pass
The sand still sifts in the hourglass
For with joy I find reborn, a spring
And in my summer I smile and sing
For daisies bloom in Autumn's wood
My life is blessed with motherhood
As children run and climb their way
Innocence shines that gentle ray
I see myself in you again
The fairy-tales of youth refrain
Please spare the wrinkles and the mist
Again, I believe in the Sandman's kiss.

Topic(s) of this poem: mother and child

    Beautiful descriptions throughout this delightful poem. The flowers, hair and the innocence
    all weave their magic. The Sandman's kiss did it for me! 10 Karin Anderson
