changes in life


An old building has so much history
But to know what went on there is a mystery
A building which is over 800 years old
Has so much secretes to be told
Like the families who lived in that estate
They would of been there when new inventions happened like a golden gate

Have you ever looked at a building and tried to guess the age
Or think think about the people at that decade
Like what happened in that small town
But now there are hundreds of people around
Because a town gets bigger each year
Without the people who found it the town wouldn't be here

Those were the days when there were few presents under the tree
The meaning for Christmas was family
They only had a few things
They only brought what they has to like a wedding ring
Some people couldn't even afford that
They were just thankful they had clothes on there back
So we should be grateful for the life we have now
Because its easier than back then I know it doesn't seem how

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
