Childhood Nostalgia

Magic silver key,
fits into my silver shoes.
I was now set free,
I now owned many sidewalks.
My new skates were a big thrill.

Wonderful Paula. Our gang roller skated almost every day except in the snow when we went sledding or when it really rained! This brings back wonderful memories. What a shared delight in both of our childhoods even through the skinned knees and bruises! Magic! Great metaphor. Thanks for the trip back in time! Congratulations and blessings!

Thanks for your visit. Glad you love this fun skate write. Those days were very magical. I loved my skates and the freedom they gave me. My bike was my next best friend. Maybe there is a write there. Have a fun/great/blessed day......................

I've only went skating once but I kept falling over so never went again. My Mother was a good skater in her day. Enjoyed Paula. Emilia : )

Thanks for your visit. Sorry you kept falling. That is no fun. As a kid I loved to skate. I have not skated in many, many years. Now I would Not fall, I would probably just kill myself. Hahaha. Have a fun/great/blessed day......................

You took me back to those first days of getting used to having my very own skates. What a joy it was, and a lovely memory. Thanks for taking me back with you through your poetry, Paula. Hugs, Bill
