Hope - Children's rhyme

It knocked at my door
In the middle of May
With a promise in store
in the bloom of the day

Allured by th' notion
That all is not lost
I leaped in one motion
As medieval Joust

Took breath for one moment
To settle the nerve
For all that was dormant
Unleashed my reserve

It took but a second
Unlocking the chain
With neither great effort
Nor strength to abstain

The anticipation
Of nearing bliss
Unveiled impatience
Erased all my wits

The Might of the Truth
Was about to enter
All doubts removed
With one sound one gander

I swung the door open
And stood there pinned
with heart Instantly frozen
By the whimsical WIND

English is not my first language nevertheless this is my language now and I always felt compelled to write not for the sake of calling it poetry or prose but for no particular reason :-) more…
