A Happy Memory

When I think back at my happiest time of life, I always recall the old home of my childhood; on a shady street and with a park at the end, where my dad and I would feed the ducks. It was such a peaceful time sitting in the park, talking and investigating the little fish at the edge; tadpoles dad said, and there were tiny frogs too, jumping all over- I think they followed us home. Many days were spent in make believe on the porch, with my dolls and teddies and weak tea in a real pot; a real pot and tea cups grandma had given to me, even, snowball cat joined the tea party on the porch. ________________________ July 5, 2020 Poetry/Light Verse/A Happy Memory Copyright Protected, 20-1266-321-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the contest, STRAND completely new ( 5 ) sponsor, Brian Strand Honorable Mention

Sam, so happy my poem brought back sweet memories for you, I have most of my grandma's dishes, and they are treasures beyond words, I can still see her and me sipping tea from the china cups at her kitchen table _Constance

Jan, thanks for the compliment, Snowball was my first cat, a Christmas gift, all white, not a speck of any other color, she was deaf, I think many all white cats are, she had 2 litters of an assortment of colors and patterns, till my mom said no more _Constance
