Noon Day Sun Poem by William Kofoed

Noon Day Sun

Blue sky arcs high over my head

light blue like a hummingbird's egg

soft and clean going over all

blue the calls within my heart to me

Golden sunlight shines down upon me

warm and pure filling my soul

warmth that covers me in its glow

as I walk upon the grass green

gentle breeze blows carrying to me

the sounds of laughter's as children play

full of joy and happiness here this day

calling to something deep inside of me

a longing strong within my heart

pulls at me as I turned my eyes to see

parents and children's families there

together and play happy and free

and I wonder as I watch

perhaps somehow I've just forgot

maybe it was once for me

just as the sight that I see

emptiness within my heart and mind

a longing for that which never was

could it be that somehow I forgot

perhaps somehow it really was

I do not believe that could not be

if such joy there ever was for me

somehow that I could ever forget

if such a thing there ever was

never did I play with them

never such joy did I share

never together did we play

under sky in light of sun

oh that it might have once been

what memories that might fill me

playing laughing together us

in a park upon the grass

filled with sorrow I turn away

such joy with them I never knew

how could it have been was it I

perhaps a child's fault it was

I do not know I cannot tell

it was not and I know not why

days spent in light of sun

under sky of blue on grass so green
