Inkwells in desks with lift-uplids
Tables written out with old pen nibs

Noses pressed flat on the window glass
our pockets tinkling ,full of brass

Exploring fields across the brook
studying in nature's real time book

Fishing for minnows with jar and net
oftimes slipping and getting wet

Winding brooklets filling narrow streams
into rivers of childhood dreams

    You've taken us back in time to the magic of childhood. So beautiful, so nostalgic. The littlest things always magnified in the eyes of youth. And those memories, like yesterday, remain clear as day, as a private treasure chest of pure joy. Love, Shar

    This goes into my favorites!! Such wonderful days were those...seems then it was more innocent to be a child, to dream of fishing, of playing, of climbing trees.....not of computer games, remote controls! Children today, are missing out on things so wonderful that they may never know. ps....we still have one of those old lift-up lid old antique that holds the inkwell. I keep it in the corner of our study, the grandchildren love to draw there. ~Love, Carrie

    The last llines got to me especially. Makes me remember my childhood with my brother. We went everywhere together, and there was an old brook we used to follow every day and try to catch little much simpler back then. I hope I can give these kind of memories to my daughter. This is so beautiful, and now I miss my brother! Lots of love, Christie
