Yesterday Once More



It seems like only yesterday I was young and climbing trees Running through the forest Scraping arms and knees Playing tag or hide and seek Hop-scotch or skipping rope Making a bow and arrow Building a periscope Playing ball on the local lot Wishing upon a star Swinging on a hanging vine Stealing from the cookie jar Tossing a ball against a wall Making figures out of clay Raiding the local apple trees Jumping in a pile of hay Playing cowboys and indians Saturday morning cartoons Running around like hooligans Acting like silly baboons Memories all come flooding back As I sit here and reminisce Of halcyon days way back when Filled with pure happiness © Jack Ellison 2012

    Childhood memories can be the best! I think you made some more for us when you wrote this... If not reminded we tend to forget.
