I can still recall my attic room, where I played with my teddy and dolls; in my so perfect small girl bedroom, I loved the floor, windows, and the walls. Where I played with my teddy and dolls, I would dream up wild fantasy tales; I loved the floor, windows, and the walls, leaving my torment- I set my sails. I would dream up wild fantasy tales, spent long hours in a make believe haze; leaving my torment- I set my sails, I let go of all truth and malaise. Spent long hours in a make believe haze, in my so perfect small girl bedroom; I let go of all truth and malaise, I can still recall my attic room. ________________________________ June 25, 2020 Poetry/Pantoum/Childhood Nostalgia Copyright Protected, ID 20-1262-903-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Feelings of Nostolgia sponsor, Eve Roper, Inspiration - Image #3 First Place

Constance, a peaceful write, it brought memories of doing the same thing. As a child we need a place of safety, sometimes growing up we are left alone. Congratulations on your win. Hugs Eve
