napowrimo 2018 – day 17

ONCE UPON A TIME

once upon a time when I was young
when dragons still were seen upon the land
when songs of deeds heroic still were sung
when men with morals weren’t afraid to stand

once upon a time so long ago
when kings and queens had power still to rule
when children trusted elders still to know
when we were still allowed to mock the fool

once upon a time I still recall
when magic was not slight of hand but real
when archers still stood guard upon the wall
when I was still a child filled with zeal

once upon a time long passed away
my mind would often wander, often stray

~~

Today’s prompt at napowrimo.net is to write a family anecdote. I’m not sure if this really qualifies…although as a child, I did have an over-active imagination…so this might be an anecdote of some of the things I saw as a kid. To be honest, my imagination has not settled down all that much 🙂

  1. Once upon a time we were nice…
    Love your words with their hints of truths. If only our imaginations could change the world…(for the better of course)
