"Days Gone By"

A tear slid slowly, down my cheek
As I remembered, days gone by
Thinking of all that used to be
Makes me melancholy, as I sigh

The summer nights, long and hot
Window fans, constantly purring
Our alarm clock ringing, six on the dot
Oatmeal, boiling as mom was stirring

We kids walked to school everyday
No Bus rides, or cars waiting . . .
Carrying our books, and lunches too
At times, it was so aggrivating

After school, we'd love to play
Everyone, came out of doors . . .
That is, after we changed our clothes
And finished our daily chores

We kids, hung around in a group
Always finding something to do
At times just talking, sitting on a stoop
Until the "curfew" whistle blew

There were hula hoops, and jump ropes
And board games, like Monopoly . . .
Riding bicycles, and building slopes
Or taking turns, climbing a high tree

We loved to roller skate everywhere
Wearing our skate key, around our neck
And how anxiously we'd await a street fair
Or proudly shuffle cards, from the deck

We played hop scotch, and double dutch
Hide and seek, or a game of buck, buck
We all loved ice cream so very much
Running, when we saw the icecream truck

We played volley ball, and bad mitton
And frisbies, flew through the air
Alway active, always out playing
With not a worry, nor a care

Oh, if I could go back for a while
To do, what we all did then . . .
I know it would bring such a smile
To be that kid . . .All over again !
