Memories of Childhood

I grew up in England just after the war.. and these are some of my memories . . . .

The bright sunshine in the morning,
Wet autumn leaves, Bluebells in a wood
A fathers closeness, a Christmas tree
Freshly ploughed earth, mothers’ make-up
Dry seaweed on a beach, School ink,
Fireplace ashes and winter rain.
A woodland stream, bacon & eggs
Fresh paint and new wallpaper
Playing amid the rubble of a bombed out house
Factory smoke, evening mist, muddy shoes
A canvas tent, Animals in a barn, and Daffodils,
Steam trains, stale beer and wet beach sand
Black shoe polish,
and newly mown grass……
