Poem - Running

Posted , 8 users are following.

I used to run on these October days,

with the autumn wind whipping

throught my hair,

and biting my cheeks apple red.

I used to run to smell the burning wood

from the chimneys.

I used to run to see the fall decorations

gracing the fronts of the houses,

I used to run to hear my feet rattle

through the falling leaves,

I used to run to feel the ease of my body,

how good the muscles felt as they warmed.

To feel as graceful as a deer,

as fast as a pather.

I could run forever, then.

I used to run.
