I Do Recall

Flowers For Children:

I Do Recall

I do recall

as if still there…

a cool air night

and bright moonlight…

a street lamp shines

its light on trees

that seem asleep

but I’m awake

and warm and safe

held in Mother’s arms…

I know no words

but feel her love

and tender care…

I do recall

as if still there…

I’m sitting up

on garden ground

with chubby child feet

that feel cool grass

and gentle breeze

and warm sunlight…

all around

is golden light

that fills me up…

I’m seeing flowers

all around…

I’m growing too

like flowers do

but more aware…

I feel the awe

of morning light

all around

as little birds call

to each other


I do recall

as if still there…

on starlit nights

our Father calls

us all outside

to sit in chairs

or rest upon

the garden grass…

I look in wonder

at the heavens…

the bright starlights

across the sky

seem to call me

to far places

strange and known…

I look up and feel

an inner call

deep down inside

I can’t explain…

I know no words

like language strange…

I lift my arms

to touch the sky

with my own hands…

I am home

all around

and everywhere…

I still recall

my Father quiet

in the starlight

and his love

as he calls us

to the garden

and happy wonders
