[extra]ordinary

they were only ordinary trees
to us the branches were beckoning
they whispered of magic
it was only a pile of leaves
to us it was autumn's laughter
smiling at our levity
it was only the famer's crop
to us it was a city
of emeralds and gold
it was only a cheerful creek
to us, a roaring river to be forded
recklessly, now
it was only the last glow of daylight
to us, the first light of stars
Venus sparkling good night
it was only now dreaded bedtime
to us, a merry chase; memories of today
and dreams of tomorrow
