When I was a Child, I did Childish things.

I wish I was a Child again

Memories of Childhood Lost

Racing through the landscape white
Puffing panting up the hill
Sunshine and snowflakes glistening bright
Hearts are pounding with the thrill.

Whistling missiles through the air,
Splattered snowballs all around.
Screams of laughter fill the air.
Trees bow their branches to the ground.

Snowmen standing, eyes of coal.
Wrapped in scarves, and hats on head.
Home made broom, twigs on pole.
Rounded bellies look well fed.

Then turn around escape the war
Headlong, speeding down the hill.
On sleds of cardboard, wood and more.
Feel the terror, feel the thrill.

Crashing, sliding faster still
Reaching the bottom fear is slain.
Turn around gaze back up the hill.
Then back to the top, letís do it again.

Memories indeed. But in truth Robin, the only thing stopping you doing all those things once again is you. The child always remains in us no matter how old we get. Throw off the shackles of a society telling you what is expected of you and just have some FUN !!
