Times Past

Away back in time when I was a child 

I roamed the hills like a hare running wild 

Barefoot and brown in the green folding glen

Those long ago years, I was carefree then

For time meant no more than another day 

And days without number before me lay

But time as we know will always move on

The past is the past and the past is gone

If time could roll back I know where I’d be

Back in that glen with the hares running free
