Once I Wandered Poem by Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

Once I Wandered

 


once I wandered on village lanes
lonely like a cloud floating to nowhere
where crowds gather dancing in the breeze
I hid beneath the leafless trees

where stars flutter and dance with the moon
I wonder if the milky way will ever stretch
a never-ending line for my star to shine
to twinkle within my coastline

I have seen many tossing heads
at my dream some sprightly dance their eyes
gliding their gaze like waves wondering
if star-dusts will ever fall where my dreams lay

I still remember the snaking road
the empty handshakes and stale smiles
that wished me a blissful solitude
my heart with pleasure remembers all

Lovely visual images and a delightful flow of well chosen words. Truely a poem to be read out loud. Nice work!
