Childhood - Poem by Richard Netherland Cook

Oh! where did it go,
The childhood I recall,
It passed like the winter snow.
Like the summer flowers,
And the daylight hours,
Like leaves from the trees in fall

Oh! where did it go,
The youth that I knew,
The childhood I loved so,
The innocents in living,
When life was forgiving,
And problems were trivial and few.

Oh! where did they go,
My years as a boy,
My how I long for them so.
The years gone too soon,
Like the burst of a balloon,
That time of happiness and joy.

Like leaves in a wind,
Those years have now past,
My childhood has come to an end,
And no matter how sad,
Are the fun that I had,
Childhood just never does last.
