Once Upon a Time….



I can walk down garden paths,

And wander through the misty roses,

Until I find a resting place,

Where my love can find me.

I can sit on velvet skirts,

Upon a mossy knoll,

And ponder on the changing skies,

Until my love can find me there.

I can listen to a whip-her-will,

Cry her mournful tune,

And wonder if she lost her love,

As mine was lost to me.

I can lay me down on fragrant beds,

And watch as posies toss their sleepy heads,

Until I dream my heart away,

And wait until my love can find the way.

    Nice. It has a sad, dreamy quality to it, at least as I read it. 🙂


    1. Hi Bun, it is a sad, dreamy kind of poem with a wish, as she had not yet given up all hope. Thank you for your comment. Greatly appreciated. K.D. Dowdall
