a poem and a picture

Children playing in the street
Dirty face and dirty feet
Skipping ropes and singing songs
This will last all summer long

Fresh air as they’re playing out
Keeps them fit as they run about
Games they play I know so well
As my journey back to my childhood dreams

Remembering the days no money about
All us kids just played out
Ancient games our parents would play
I still remember to this day

Skipping ropes tug of war
And playing tag I adored
Playing out from dawn to dusk
Happy were we school was done

These pleasant days I remember well
Because many times in my childhood dwell
To see a smile on a Child’s face
The world is a happier place

– Jim O’Donnell
