Chesapeake Bay.


I remember

The heat

And the bugs

The lazy bay, in the forest

Muddy

Filled with filthy water

Theres our beautiful boat

Lying at ready

Looking peaceful and happy

Oh those days!

Those happy days! so filled with adventure

Whether swimming in the bay or exploring the forest


We explored the forest

When we moved

Years ago they were

So long ago

They were the best years of my entire life

Good years were always enjoyed

They were days of freedom, pain free, love and laughter.

How I miss them

Relaxing at nights

Out on the bay,

No wind, no sails, a simple concert of noises of the night and the breezes

Watching the deer cross our property line

Those were years to enjoy

Indeed they were


Those cool nights

On the bay

Listening to the wind and waves

As we passed good food and good memories that we had

All those years with friends

And foes alike

Laughing and crying alike

The memories are like the tide

They come in without warning

Alas those days are so far past

Yet I still smile

As they pass along in my mind like all the sailing races I enjoyed.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I use to live in Maryland, and we had a dock there. We could go swimming, or have a mud fight, (a kayak makes very good cover!) but had to avoid the jellies. And the sailing there was really nice. I plan to move back some day.. Please read and review!

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.
