turn backward,
O time in
your flight,
Make me a
child again
just for
Mother, come
back from the
echoless shore,
Take me again
to your heart
as of yore.
~Elizabeth Akers Allen
Have an enchanted

Oh how many times does my heart sing this song/poem to just be a child ONCE MORE, just one day so I can see it through wiser eyes! THANK YOU for this enchanting moment my friend! Anita

Fabulous upbeat paintings expressing joy and a good match to the poem.


What gorgeous artwork. And a lovely sentiment for just a night. Childhood and it's innocence.

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~From a headstone in Ireland"

She knows you can't... she wouldn't want you to and loose all you've created thanks to her example and teaching.

A nice, endearing, thought from someone who never stopped missing and loving who gave her so much, all...

Be well, be Blessed, Dear Friend!

Love reading poems, real slow and over and over again! Sheri, I'm sorry I've been away from a visit, every time I think I'm going forward with blogging, something gets in the way :0 So soon I will post, first chance. Also, I have put the cart before the horse with my Esty shop, I'm truly not ready, but I will paint you the "Hope" painting with brown hair. With everything, just give me a little time!Much love coming your way dear friend, Rayanne
