HOW WONDERFUL INNOCENCE WAS
Passersby stared at me and complimented mom
for her gorgeous child
who smiled very tenderly,
and being moved by how
I sang my nursery rhyme,
they applauded saying, " Oh, it's so pretty! "
A few days ago, being bored I searched
for a rare coin collection sold
to me by the Bradford exchange,
but surprisingly I found a forgotten picture between
the pages of a book written by James McQueen,
and in that picture there was me at a tender age.
The more I looked at it, the more that shy and fair child resembled me,
and being amazed by my discovery,
I started living the thrill of childhood days:
remembering spring afternoons and how wonderful innocence was!
