Sunny Side – Author Glenda Higgins

Everyone’s on the sunny side

Of the street but me

I looked but couldn’t see

I couldn’t remember the way

 

Can you? Do you want to go

To the place of innocence lost

Where someone loved you

Because you were there

 

All the way

Do you know the route?

What side do you walk on

I looked but couldn’t see

 

The sunny side of the street

Where the road leads

Only a fool can see

All the way

 

Do you think that’s silly

Or funny? Let’s laugh

And bounce balls found

In deserted drains

 

And listen to echoes

Of children’s laughter

From forgotten days

Held lovingly to ears

 

Do you hear it?

Get with it

Listen to poets

They know the way

 

To the stars in fields

Of white butterflies

Where some roads lead

And turtles soak up the sun

 

Everyone’s on the sunny side

Of the street but me

I looked and couldn’t see

I couldn’t remember the way

About the Author 

Glenda spent her early work in libraries – ten years in various positions, including cataloguing, which launched her on a favorite pastime of reading everything under the sun.

 Her start as a poet surprised her. She took a poetry-writing course. Two hundred poems wrote themselves in a furious manner, in two weeks.  This led to performing poetry in cafes and on the radio and about three hundred more poems.
