CHILDHOOD


Remebrances so lasting,
From the time I clung
To my mothers breasts,
Walking with faltering steps,
Finding the fun in running,
Chasing the puppy
In the corridors of home,
Smelling the flowers,
So different and beautiful,
Trying to catch squirrels,
Playing with the caught crab,
Playing football in the field,
Dreaming of becoming a Pele,
A mahout, bus driver, farmer,
Learing to peddle the bike,
Looking stealthily at pretty girls,
Loving to be kissed and caressed,
Running to school with friends,
What a great life it was,
Never to return, when was
It better at five, ten or seventeen.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
