Childhood and Sunlight

Childhood and sunlight,
both elusive and
ephemeral
Flicker between the leaves
Dance on the water

Shine bright in the treetops


Both grow dim with
The passage of time

But if you search
Peering down leaf-strewn
ravines
With the eyes of youth


You may find echoes of childhood
Still wading barefoot
In clear waters


Where childhood and sunlight meet once again
To float free


Or shine on the mossy rocks and feathery ferns


Of a Faerie Spring.
