The White Bedroom Set

"How sweet to the heart are the scenes of my childhood"
Samuel Woodworth, 1785-1842
I remember wonderful childhood days
many special ones were spent with my Dad
reminiscing makes me sad in some ways
Going with you to auctions made you glad
watching the bidding sometimes was a bore
bittersweet memories make me feel sad
You took me to auctions and antique stores
We ate cooked onions and steamed red hot dogs
You bid on the set with the white drawers
It wasn't the one with the pinecone knobs
excited you won the white bedroom set
dreaming of pink bedding in catalogues
For years we laughed about that winning bet,
it wasn't the one you wanted me to get
