When I was Young.


Oh I scaled those lofty mountains,
And plunged deep into ocean’s den,
I scathed the crusts of the snowy tundra,
And wandered in the Sahara, under the raining sun;

I hunted with the lions,
And hopped with the hares,
I soared with the eagles,
Like gulls, dived to hunted despair;

Bears and me, stole honey form the hornets,
Butterflies and me, danced along rivulets,
Sunflowers and me, raced from sun dawn to sun down,
Life didn’t care, and I cared no less;

Oh how I loved to play with myself,
Throw a ball high and go play fetch,
Oh how I loved talking to myself,
Sending postcards to myself everyday;

When I was Young!!

Don't we want a time-machine? I do. Sigh.

When I was young...sigh...

This post makes me nostalgic.
And you sent yourself postcards ?!

I still do everything you'd mentioned, with the difference that now the eloquence is replaced by silence and the actions by thoughts. When I was young I had myself, now I don't. :(

Nice one. At least someone can still write poetry. My writter block is permanent I believe.

PS:- That picture is simply beautiful :) Makes me all frisky, and wish to play in the lawn.

Its better not to be a writer. No writer block woes. I enjoy being just myself

Every word made sense. Loved the poem a lot!
Feel like being a little kid again :)

Old people like me can still do this stuff. What we call life - busyness, "responsibilities" - tends to get in the way. It's good to hang out with kids frequently in order to relearn the skill of losing yourself in the moment.
