Return to the Scene

Mousy brown so small and
Insignificant
Wonder where the ten-story dreams went
Somewhere the river bent and
I went wide right

Head hazy full of pink daisies
Time didn’t use to be so lazy
When I was a little younger
Full of wonder and hunger
My eyes sparkling with light

I was bigger than
Myself
Before I put my dreams up
On the shelf
And settled for something else
Like going to bed at ten

But my heart is growing
Day by day
And the olive-drab cover is starting to fray
And I am starting to
Find my way back to
Ten-story dreams again
