A dozen or more
plastic soldiers
cast in heroic attitudes
bayoneted rifles in their hands

an almost ancestral bicycle
the little metal samovar
dishes cups and bowls

the shaggy dog
in the small front yard
a wading pool
and set of swings

Flowered dresses
On the window sill
a doll with braided hair

A mere thirteen of green plastic
Standing against childhood foes
Too soon to attack imagination,
And winning reality.

A tricycle painted in rust of years
Abandoned for two wheels
Then four,
Piled in the rubbish heap.

A tired dog doesn’t bark
Too many has ignores him
None come except the birds
To peck at ants by the fence

A doll from her crib
Sits on a pillow of her bed
Still cuddled during thunderstorms
But bedridden by age.

Gloom

snaphots of scenes that are emblazoned on the heart and mind, imagery that bleeds humanity

and for the children, I cringe...at that refrain 'suffer the litle children to come unto me'...and all that goes with such phrases that keep my feet as far away as possible from houses of 'worship'
