Remembering when

The Old Tree Fort I remember when.... we looked upon a sea of brown of housetops where we knew the names of families up the street and down We would spy and laugh, with reckless shame I remember when... that sagging door in our knotted box was much too squat for Mary Sue To squeeze her bouncy redhead locks she had to bend her frame in two I remember when... time would cast a spell, so heaven sent for kids like me, who came and went That knotty tree fort, where hours spent was a Land of Oz, we'll not forget
