Childhood Memories

Vintage Words

.

Nightcrawlers came out

after the rain. Lemons cost

too much so Kool-Aid stands

were the ticket. A big

bandana was the skirt

of choice, knot tied

at the side.

.

We made toy houses

out of paper and spread

blankets over clothelines

that became our camp

tents.

.

No cardboard box larger

than three by three by three

feet ever escaped H-on-the-side

openable windows and doors

with drawn on knobs.

.

Making was fun. You enjoy

the latest invention for 

about five minutes, then go

form a baseball team or play

catch. Transister radios

ran on very precious batteries.

Stuffed animals were what

Carnivals meant when

kids got involved.

I Go There

Once in a while to remember stuff I used to do and see long ago, ages ago - at 69 the world grows dim, but recalling clarifies. Thanks for the read. Stop by anytime. Welcome mat is always out, snow-covered in winter, leaf covered in fall, dusty in summer - but this is spring and it is rained on mostly :D slc
