Moments Taken

My precious child
How could you know
The way that life
Is wont to go?

These moments;
Taken, set apart,
You reading rapt,
Full mind and heart

To someplace else,
Somewhere: not-here —
In that world, joy:
In this world,

5 Thoughts to “Moments Taken

  1. I found myself the other day looking up from my book and song a young man I have watched grow up, and in that instance was brought back to a stark reality that a boy I knew at 12 was now turning 21… and the Pevensies whom are in the book never age as I turn the page. Good poem to reflect that thought upon.

      1. It was enjoyable. Kind of sad to say goodbye to Edmund and Lucy…. and Reepicheep.
