A boy forever be

D enjoying the Parish Fall Festival
The joy of youth knows no bounds
Whether forest, field, or town
Endless zip and star-filled eye
Oh dad, just one more time

One more time on the swing
Or down the grassy hill
One more time myself to fling
Wild, and laughter shrill

My heart is full from his
A lesson for me to see
Live with love and joy
A boy forever be.

This boy continues to stir my heart.  After watching him play ALL day yesterday at the Parish Fall Festival I was a little jealous of his love for life.  It's a lesson I need to learn over and over.  While looking at this picture I composed this little bit of poetry because my heart was so full.  I guess you could say it was an Epiphany of Beauty.  Check out some other Epiphanies of Beauty here.

Thanks for linking up!

You "guess" that's an Epiphany of Beauty?

It most certainly is! A lovely poem!
