remembering my first home

church street, altrincham

afternoon on a hill

i will be the gladdest thing 
   under the sun! 
i will touch a hundred flowers 
   and not pick one. 

i will look at cliffs and clouds 
   with quiet eyes, 
watch the wind bow down the grass, 
   and the grass rise. 

and when lights begin to show 
   up from the town, 
i will mark which must be mine, 
   and then start down!
