I Thought I Had Forgotten - Poem by Nero CaroZiv

I thought I had forgotten childhood days of fun and mock calendar
But it all came back so vivid again
To-night with the first spring thunder
In a rush of early spring rain.

I remembered a darkened stairsrway
Where I stood as a child while the storm swept by,
Thunder gripping the earth thru houses gloom and dim ways
And lightning scrawled on the sky.

The passing rushing people thru swamps swayed,
For the streets around were rivers of rain,
Lashed into little murky muddy waves
In the lamp columns light's stain.

Constant and persistent were the wild spring rain and thunder
I was at my friend porch; my heart was wild and gay;
My memories so vivid of that wait that night
Of yet unprepared homework; trepidation of what tomorrow the teacher would say

I thought I had forgotten those precious haunting days,
But it all came back so vivid again
To-night with the first spring thunder
In a rush of early spring rain.
Make me delirious, happy and insane
