Thoughtful Emotion

One two three O leary
Four five six OLeary
Seven eight nine O Leary
Out goes u

Lol these were the words my Tad taught me
When trying to see who was going to go first
I often wonder of the words of these old tales
How far back in the archives they first resurrected their heads

In Ireland they used to bounce a ball to this rhyme
Everything alters with the ongoing of time
Be interesting to find out what will go on for years
From the tales of today, do we have any,  I fear.

There again children don’t play in the street or in the park
To busy sitting in front of a screen til its dark
Fresh air would kill them I am sure that’s what they think
Goodness help the generation that comes after this.

    How true that children just aren't active any more; a price to be paid in the future I think. All the best to ya Seren, love the O'Leary parts to this!

    "One, Two, Three O Leary" brought back sweet childhood memories. That was very familiar to me even over here in Canada many years ago. Happy Easter Seren! Love Jack xox

    Well penned Serene, I agree with you, we need to have our children exposed to the world out there, I love to watch young children interact with the old, there is so much to learn from them, thank you for sharing this, have a great Easter filled with love and peace, xxx

    This poem is so very true, the children now days are so immersed with technology that they don't see this simplicity of just playing outside and using their imagination! I miss those innocent days when I played outside and had all the fun I could muster for an entire day! I loved reading this amazing poem this afternoon! What a fantastic piece, Great Work!!
