    Worry Free and Gay

    Looking out over fields of flowers,
    Peering out from my little forest,
    I head out running as fast as I can,
    Making a path through the field,
    Naked as a jay bird am I,
    Butterflies explode from flowers,
    In a rainbow of colors bfor me,
    Grasshoppers jump out of my way,
    As I run laughing all the way,
    I jump a creek scaring basking turtles,
    Sunning frogs and frightened minnows,
    Feeling so gay I start to run faster,
    Trying to jump up and touch the sun,
    I run along the top of a stone wall,
    Exposed for all of nature to see,.
    Wearing only a big smile, feeling so gay,
    I can't restrain the joy, the happiness,
    Of being so free, I need a release from lifes woes,
    I need to be gay and worry free,
    When I finally attain this, Being so happy, I stop,
    Only to realize I have to pee...........

    such a great poem.such great imagination!!! I will learn from you! you are such a great poet

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
