Childhood Treasures

Awash in a dream filled sleep content
I wandered streets of childhood spent
Playing games with ball and jacks
Exploring woods and railroad tracks
Cops and robbers; you've been caught
Penny candy could be bought
Slay the dragons; do be brave
Shirley Temple's curly wave
Hop Scotch drawn on streets with chalk
Find some water; skip a rock
Neighbor friends who'd play all day
Now all grown; they've gone away.
