Once Upon a Time

remember the way you flew
across fields chasing butterflies
remember the homemade kite
that flew up to meet a mountain top
remember how you savored
the capture of the mound
in King of the Hill, counted jumps
In double dutch, didn't step on the line
in Hop Scotch, dreamt of riding
a unicycle, and went to sleep
dreaming of going to the circus
and seeing the aerialists walking the wire--
you didn't make lists of things to do
you just walked into tomorrow
