Two Golden Things

I ran down the stairs, and by the pool
to capture fast two golden things
that teased my mind for days and long--
the golden bells from down below
(so fast accomplished
while the sky still light
but not too bright)
and also quickly snip the yellow banner tied
in bent pine by corner there I'd spied
for many laps, swam wondering why
the year went by, though after all repairs
the long thin flag for caution was still tangled in her hair.
When finally I touched the hardened bough
I saw no implement was needed, she allowed
the softest fingers to slip there through the loosened knot
and free her finally for my eyes' ease.
And now I swim with easy stroke
and knowing how that spell
was broken, I'm assured
no caution will I take to wait
so long for caution to remove.
I smile this time, that it was not too late.
