We have Lingered

We have lingered in the playrooms of the young

with tiny cherubs on the run

building tents and castles from chairs and blankets.

We have lingered in the playrooms of the young.

 

We have danced in seaweed beneath a young one’s sun.

In our clothes of dreams we danced

and wrapped our days of fun with paper, glue and glitter.

We have danced in seaweed under a young one’s sun.

 

We have dug up treasures on the beach

turned the smoothed out broken glass

into a magic diamond from the past.

We have dug up treasures on the beach.

 

We have woken from our childhood

to care for tiny cherubs on the run.

We clean the blankets and chairs

wash the clothes of dreams and watch

the beginning of the setting of the sun.
