Discovery - Poem by Barry Middleton

when I behold a field in bloom
I think of childhood days

among the brier as I did roam
my childhood spirit strays
I still can taste the secret spring
where crystal water flowed

then ran the valley to the creek
to pay the debt it owed
I think of brave attendant souls
who delved with me the lair

of huge and hidden perils near
but we would take the dare
now we cannot go home again
we know the poets say

still I recall and treasure all
the dreams of yesterday
