A collection of random memories from my childhood

Glimpses of Childhood

Tree forts and snow forts
Go-carts and bikes
Skate boards and dinky cars
Brownies and Guides

Sleeping in the trailer
Days at the pool 
Neighborhood baseball
Sunday school

Skating on the pond
Inner tubes at the lake
Baked beans and brown bread
Mom's fancy cakes

Piano lessons on Wednesdays
Saturday morning cartoons
Coloring books, crayons
Playing records in my room

Camping and fishing
Peddle boats and canoes
Lego and board games
Summer days with no shoes

Fires in the back yard
Fearing bears would come out
From the little woods
Behind the house

Wooden spoon in the drawer
Two little twin beds
Favorite stuffed animals
Red and white bedspreads

Sawdust and dirt piles  
Bike to Button Brook
Riding Dad's motorbike
A good Nancy Drew book

Spruce trees in winter
Snow and Christmas lights
Shoveling the driveway
Snowball fights

Big Christmas dinners
Dining room table
Visits with cousins
Drives to Cape Sable

Bay of Fundy evenings
Bonfires at low tide
Dark spooky barn
Bikes in it at night

Pajamas and ice cream
Bedtime stories and snack
Being called in at twilight
For a Sunday night bath

Throwing red berries 
That grew on a vine
A long stick with a V
Holds up the clothesline

Football and lawn darts
Playing Hide and seek
Mowing Mr. Bent's lawn
For five bucks a week

Glimpses of childhood
I think back and smile
How I wish I could go back
And stay there a while
