Childhood Nights

Childhood Nights

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

How sweet our former lives.

"

me Tony Kernie

Me on the left Tony in the middle and Kerny on the right

 

 

 

In dreams of my sweet former life

 with the wonders childhood poses

I find those friends I left behind

still so young and fresh like roses


I wonder if to them I'm old

when they think upon occasion

Do they wonder as, I do

of that inner child's persuasion


To me they are the cherished ones

memories of lost summer nights

When we played hide and seek till dark

enriched by all life's smells and sights


In dreams they live on as before

echoes of games we use to play

I start each night as they ended

with the dreams from yesterday

Your welcome!
There is little more beautiful and fulfilling than sitting back and fully remembering one's youth. I often have dreams of days gone by, and it is always bittersweet when I wake. Great imagery and emotion in this one. Nicely done.

Sarah what I wouldnt give to be a child again thank you
For those of us who were blessed with wonderful childhood, those memories carry us throughout our lives. I still see my childhood friends as the innocent youths they were, knowing that Life has intervened... A sweet write that warms the heart, Tate!

Hi Rita The same for me I still think of them often
Mon Cher Tate

Cela me fait grand plaisir d’avoir encore une fois l’occasion de lire et de faire une critique (toujours bien sur impartiale et objective) d’une de tes œuvres poétiques.

Ce coup-ci j’ai choisi de ton répertoire le poème ‘Childhood Nights.’

Etant donné que j’ai déjà entrepris plusieurs études de tes morceaux, je n’ai pas besoin de t’expliquer comment j'aborde la poésie, généralement parlant, en revue.

Le fait que je fais ainsi en utilisant ma deuxième langue (non pas ma langue maternelle, qui est l’anglais) est simplement de choix personnel.

Que je sois bilingue ou pas n’a rien à voir avec.

Je le fais simplement parce que j’en ai envie.

Un point c’est tout.


Critique :

1) Structure, rime et rythme :

Quatre strophes de quatre lignes.

Rime ‘abcb’.

Quant au rythme, bien qu’il n’y ait pas un système ou si tu veux une configuration fixe, j’entends toujours une mélodie au fond.

2) Grammaire et ponctuation : Tu ne ponctues pas du tout. Si je ne recherche qu’une chose c’est un genre de cohérence complète.

Ponctuer ou ne pas le faire du tout.

L’un ou l’autre.

De ces deux méthodes tu choisis la première et je la préfère.

3) Utilisation de langage / vocabulaire : Simple! Rien de compliqué, un peu comme le sujet de ta pièce.

4) Sujet et signification : Toujours ce-qui m’importe le plus dans n’importe quelle écriture, que ce soit poésie, nouvelle ou roman.

Tout le temps, me semblerait-il, mon ami, tu reviens à chaque reprise sur un thème qui, autant que je puisse déduire, concerne soit ton enfance ou des amis perdus.

Ici tu me présentes tous les deux - comme tu l’exprimes ‘Tatertot and I’

Si j’ose te le dire, je retrouve aussi ci-dedans, un seul point de repère qui a un genre de puissance dans ta vie, qui est tout ce-qui ’il y a à voir avec l’âge de l’homme.

C’est-à-dire qu’il y a moins de jours à vivre qu’il n’y a déjà vécus – vieillesse contre jeunesse, su tu veux.

C’est un thème que je trouve et charmant et particulier à toi sur ce site web.

5) Lignes favorites ? Tes dernières :

‘In dreams they live on as before
echoes of games we use to play
I start each night as they ended
with the dreams from yesterday’

Passé/ présent.

6) Vue d’ensemble : Qu’est-ce qu’il y a à dire de plus? Comme toujours poésie de finesse!


Chaleureusement

lol....
The dreams are the same, but different as well...
The color may fade, but the feelings seem to deepen.
Thank you for this dream of poetry and song.
You use a powerful tool to bring comfort to a common day.

This poem Tate brings me back to my own childhood...and sometimes the visit is pretty amazing! When we are young we want to grow up fast and become adults, then we get there only to look back on those days and realized that some of those days were the best days of our lives. I needed a happy note to end my day...thanks!!

You have written it very beautifully. It, so distinctly, portrays the feeling of one's lost childhood.
