Juvenile Crime

May 21, 2015 | By

A poet’s wistful appeal to retain the beauty of his childhood dreams, that he admits as his juvenile crime. A dreamy, romantic, emotional confession.

window bars

And
always
I find myself,
caged behind
the iron window bars

To frame the beauty
of dark nights,
and vistas of an open window

and
stroke gently
the child of my cheerful dreams

Such, juvenile crime
I always do;
And
always
I find myself,
caged behind
the iron window bars,
occasionally to be laughed at, by
a raven, that
slide a shadow pass
outside my pillow view
flapping wings of bat
ever silent ever fearful

To accuse myself
for any crime;
Let that be a boon,
to shovel beauty of my dreams:
My juvenile crime!
