Young Again by Maureen Sevilla

I know if you hate poetry, you'll hate this ... but I love this poem. It's wild, represents freedom and carefree youth ... and it's nostalgic.


Young Again

By Maureen Sevilla


Between dusk and dawn, we meet
In flowered fields, in forests green
On snowy mountain tops

With butterflies by day and fireflies by night

At the seesaw by the swings
In a small wooden boat
On a speedy Red Flyer

The wind whips beneath arms flying
Capped milk bottles, cold metal crates
And the climbing tree waits --

With perfectly spaced branches
