The Good Old Days

by Gerard Lebel

Remember the wintry days of old as the cold and snow took hold...
We would venture outside for awhilewith perhaps a story to be told.

The tree laden slopes coated with white and shiny, crisp snow,
Offered passage to folks on sleds, saucers and tiptoe.

The tiny frozen pond at the base of the hill,
Offered skating to the kids, giving them a thrill.

Their squeals of laughter could be heard ‘round the block,
While they took their spills, usually ignoring the clock.

Neighbors walking their dogs, friends cavorting hand in hand,
Later in the evening they would gather by the bandstand.

Singing “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and “Joy to the World“,
Happiness abounded for every boy and girl.

Caroling on to church for hot chocolate and cake,
A time of sharing of which we all would partake.

Our world seemed more welcoming and lovelier in many ways.
Life was simpler, for the children of winter, in the good old days.
