Toy Train

15 December 2010
By: Noel N. Villarosa

I was at my age avid for adventure
Played outside home, street as my playground
Every nimiety of joy, I want to capture
Never ran out of game plan to lay down

At that time, robots are in the boom
Voltes V, Mazinger Z, and Daimos, among my favorites
But what most appealing for me to have in my playroom
Is a battery operated toy train with complete accessories

Christmas season is the best time to receive gifts
For a child like me, full of excitement and wishful 
Life was hard before,  wishful thinking somehow gone adrift
Somehow, someday under the Christmas tree, I’ll find it circling in full

Watch the tiny trains buzzing along the tracks
It’s a fun to place little trees and people in the scene
 Reverberating rhythm of horn and its wheels click-clack
Passing by a miniature bridge, tunnels, forest so evergreen

Make up stories for the little people in the scene
Why there are there and what’s happening
Still fresh and playing wildly in my brain
I’ll make it happen on Christmas day with my son mingling

6th place in "TOYLAND" contest

    There are lots of pleasant memories of childhood that we hold dear to our hearts, Noel! Christmas was my favorite time of year, filled with so much joy and magic! I will never forget the huge bright moon and billions of stars that lit up our world! Beautiful memories in this poem to last forever! Blessings, peace and joy, always, Love, audrey

    We played outside most of the time too, Noel, and were never at a loss for "creating" games. Every Christmas, however, my uncle would set up his amazing trains and we had so much fun putting "little people" as well as bridges, trees and tiny buildings in the huge layout. It brought the family closer together, so I'm glad you're still doing this with your son! What a fabulous and unique entry for the toy contest. Wishing you success and a very merry Christmas! Love, Carolyn
