Childhood Treasures

Awash in a dream filled sleep content
I wandered streets of childhood spent
Playing games with ball and jacks
Exploring woods and railroad tracks
Cops and robbers; you've been caught
Penny candy could be bought
Slay the dragons; do be brave
Shirley Temple's curly wave
Hop Scotch drawn on streets with chalk
Find some water; skip a rock
Neighbor friends who'd play all day
Now all grown; they've gone away.

    Nicely written and loved the end too. Enjoy your day as well.

    I'm sorry I have been so remiss in reviewing you!! Nostalgic, and so emotive... rich in detail and expression. BRAVO my dear!!! Blessings and hugs, Keith

    This is the type of dream I like most, Lena! Sometimes I wish I could go back and live in these innocent days, but all my childhood friends have "grown; they've gone away." Beautiful dream, Lena. Love, Carolyn
