There Was That Then - Poem by Rani Turton
There was that then
There is this now;
Then, the sun-heated tiles
And now, now the snow.
There were fat shady trees then
But that was then
And now the years have slipped away
The trees are now tall and thin.
Now I see the seasons pass
Spring, summer, winter and fall
But long long ago
All that didn't matter at all.
The world turns slowly for some
And not fast enough for others
The stars, the sun, the moon
Are now my sisters and brothers.
