Children

A Poem by George Coombs

Scene from a park near where I live

Children


autumn

           in the leaf carpeted park


trees rustle in rivers of wind

squirrels, birds

children running innocent

as tremulous light

sprinkling the calm air

with laughter

running, playing, climbing

bodies gilded in

autumn brightness.

i watch

distant from them

while hesitant steps move

along their long life path.

Worthy of silent observation...like watching a caterpillar through its stages of development. Fascinating! Thank you for sharing.
