I remember those summer evenings when everything was nice The shade of the setting sun, hide and seek, cat and mice Playing with friends, fun and innocence Every day anew, enlivened with its own presence.
I remember those winter mornings, grey and dreary Someone cooed in my ear, “planning a picnic, wake up cheery.” A day spent by the side of that bucolic lake Sun’s rays reflected as we fed the fishes with morsels of a cake.
I remember those rainy days of unexpected fun Paper boats, red and blue, scary clouds, harsh rain and no sun Skipping and hopping in the temporary puddle Returning from school, a bunch of friends, a single umbrella, all in a huddle.
I remember those fresh afternoons, cool fragrant breeze Spring, with all its aroma, butterflies and bees Tryst with nature, with colours abound Life was itself a merry-go-round.
Childhood memories, stirred and shaken How I wish to grow up once again!
