PAD 19 memory

Childhood Home

To me, it was idyllic—
my childhood home
set in the P-A countryside
with pine, shade, apple and nut trees
and several large gardens

Acres of grass
which we weren’t all too happy to mow
surrounded by hills and woods
creeks, relatives, friends
along a curvy country road.

The distinct seasons provided entertainment
Vibrant springs, puddles to splash and play in.
Toasty summers, cold creeks to wade barefoot
Crisp autumns, brightly colored leaves to jump in
Cold winters, snow for sled riding and snow forts 
To kids, our neighborhood was a giant playground.
