What goes around

What goes around

I was a child here
           played here
gathered conkers
           in the woods here
did battle with
           my friends here
won so many games here
           and ran across the fields
till I was blue
           in the face

life is always as
           it promises to be
           and the seasons
teach us inevitably
           that what goes around
comes around 
           and so it does here

John Lyons
