Poetry By Ken in Rainbow Colors








I was a little nipper when it started
And I recall growing light-hearted
When I'd hear my parent's murmur
I was to be in Eden for the summer.

It was a fairytale kingdom to me
An enchanting realm to see,
Grandma was the beautiful queen
And grandpa ruled the land serene.

In sweet memory I daydream still
Of that castle amidst the hills,
In a quiet valley nestled in a nook
Sat their farm by a bubbly brook.

As a child I spent glorious times
In this land of nursery rhymes
Enchanted days I would explore
At night magical dreams would soar.

The sights and sounds of their farm
Those hours I played in the barn,
Cherished memories I hold so dear
Remains in my mind vividly clear.

Memories of grandpa mowing hay
And the baby farm animals at play,
Horseback riding atop the old bay,
Resting on the porch at end of the day.

I can still taste grandma's fresh bread
The smells of her kitchen fill my head,
Every meal was a masterpiece divine,
A royal feast of heavenly design.

That rooster crowing at start of day
Calico kittens playing out in the hay,
Yapping puppies nipping at my feet,
Daily in wonderland was a grand treat.

So many good times I often recall
And cherished to me are they all,
Youthful adventures of a small child
With an imagination running wild.

When I wish to escape harsh reality
My mind drifts back to tranquility
To that magic kingdom in the hills
Where fairytale dreams are filled.

There between God's earth and sky
Where the rippling brook winds by
There is a weathered old gray barn,
It's all that's left of grandad's farm.
