When I was a kid, once a year on TV, “The Wizard of Oz” would be shown. It thrilled us and scared us, but how we enjoyed! (Just as long as we weren’t alone.) My parents were there when the scary witch came And, years later, my husband and I Sat and watched with our kids, singing all of the songs We remembered from being knee-high. Now today, here we are, watching Oz on the screen, With our daughter and grandkids in tow, Belting every word, reassuring in parts That once frightened us, too, long ago.
