Poem–Carefree Summer Days–By: CNS


 

               CAREFREE SUMMER DAYS

Like carefree summer days of childhood,

this summer day

A joy renewed that kindles memories past.

Happy days when all seemed simple.

In retrospect, the view is clearer now…

Not totally carefree – but perceived as such

through childish eyes.

 

Now, more mature eyes fully comprehend.

The future looms…

 The present weighs heavy with its burdens…

 But Christ – His joy and mercy sharing

 Bids only rest – and HE will carry…

 True carefree summer days within us—

 Abundantly supplied!

                      June 6, 1994

Listening to the birds and watching the squirrels—sitting on my patio               resting—mediating—feeling at peace.  It reminded me of my “carefree”          childhood!
