Chris, this is a beautiful poem with a touch of sentimentality and a touch of sadness. I feel it right down in my bones.

Hi Chris. Vivid images! The whiteness is chilling, and clear. Excellent. Thanks.

I love the "timeless" paired with the seasonal descriptions. August snow of innocence... beautiful.

such a beautiful scene you've painted here... "lost in the rush to mature" ... wow, such a powerful line!!!

I love all of this, but especially "dressed in matrimonial snow"!!! Thank you for this gem that marries the past with the present.

a very memorable poem, and a very special tribute to that moment of the past. Lovely.

You've always seemed pretty innocent to me, buddy! ;) Seriously though, great read, Chris. I really enjoyed this piece. You come up with the most beautiful combinations of words. Well done -Kat :)

The power of return to that innocence is what makes the poem extremely moving. Not a memory but a revival. This is powerful communicated in few words. "Matrimonial snow" is perfect.

The season aspects of this are stunning, especially the unlikelihood, the incongruence of snow/heat of August

Good, 'clean' stuff Chris - I like the idea of splitting 'forgotton/mislaid' and 'live' memories with the delayed introduction of the personal prounoun, and this...
which, though contradictory by inference, is a plausible representation of our social/emotional evolution.
I guess I'm trying to say I enjoyed :>

So beautiful! The paradox of heat and snow together is just incredible. Here where there's no snow, the imagery of this is romantic and brings back memories of those days when I knew so little and wanted to know so much. Didn't we all?
