The Old Homeplace Revisited (Unmetered Rhyming Verse) by Mike Williams 04/28/2016 @ 11:22 A.M.

Down a street of shadows,
I observe the dark night.
Phantoms forgot fill my mind,
The old homeplace distantly alight.
I can’t tame the ghosts,
Which swim inside my head.
They whirl in wild abandon,
Of the dearly departed dead.

I move among the past,
In the present quite transfixed.
Thoughts of yesterday linger on,
As I am temporarily bewitched.
I see a familiar face,
But not saying a word.
How strange this historical place,
Within my mind has stirred.

As I turn to go,
Before the soon rising sun.
I’m tear filled with sorrow,
Seeing again where I’d begun.
A haunted house of memory,
I leave while looking back.
Away from my childhood home,
As the street lamps go black.
