Sidewalk Dreams

Bright yellow rays of the sun
glistening on the chalky sidewalk.
Drawn by a childish hand.
Primitive in art, but great in feeling
this childish, carefree drawing
on the sidewalk of life.

Oh, what hopes and dreams,
lurk in this childish heart?
Of carefree days of play and innocence
of sunny days and golden sunshine
and makebelieve pirates and
adventures in the deep.

Keep watch on this lonely sidewalk,
in the rain, until the young
and the young in heart, can play again.
On your golden warm sidewalks,
of dreams and innocent fantasies.

[c]1999 by Rosemary Winters Tracey
