Reminisce--By Richard Sponaugle--United States


To relive those halcyon days,
spent in the mid morning June haze;
times with nothing to do at all,
nothing to think of big or small.
Nights were predictably boring,
and midnight found me long snoring.
Shame I didn’t savor it then;
but what’s Hell to a boy of ten,
is Heaven to a man grown old,
when peaceful moments are pure gold.

Richard Sponaugle was born 4-20-60 in Maryland and raised in Northern Virginia.  He received a BA from George Mason University.  A prolific poet and songwriter, he has been published in many venues. 


  1. Hi Richard,

    I enjoyed your write on the yesterday long past very nicely written.


  2. Richard, as children we do get bored when we think we have nothing to do. As adults, we wish we had more time. Nice bit of irony in this wonderful poem! Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire
