Sometimes remembering
Is a good thing.



CHILDHOOD DAYS

Heard on a warm summers day,
A little birdie whistle.
Wonder if he's happy,
Or did he sit upon a thistle.

Maybe that was a screech,
Heard from a bigger bird.
Remembering what my father
Heard, At the dawn chorus
Of the birds.
Woken up stormed out of bed,
As he opened the window up.
I still remember what he said,
He bellowed. "Shut up."
Closed the window,
Then climbed back into bed.
