Halcyon Days

Our world
Has become
Like a hospital
Ward sterilised,
Clinical, and
Cold,

img_0645_400Lost our
Charm,
Lost our
Belief;
A lost
Sculptural
Relief.

The
Golden
Days,the
Halcyon
Days

The Parlours
And solons
Of the olden
Days

Like a
Colourful
Coral
Frozen
In time;
Caught in
A crystal
Ball.

I gaze
Towards
The shore,
Where once
Majestic
Sailing ships
Cleaved the
Waves under
Roaring
Gales

Then
I'm brought
Back to the
Present by
The sounds
Of bike bells,
And seashells.

The children
Playing in
The sand;
And dream
Of the time
When they
Will look
Back upon
Our age as
The golden days,
The halcyon
Days.
