Childhood Days

My childhood days i romp down the streets
In mere pant and in public i pee
And to merry in rains with friends i plead
I say the sun - an orange big and ripe
And i wonder about the moon at night
Who owns the white banana in the sky?
Will it fall like manner? I am its spy

I looked at my dad and said
I want to ride, in unlike yours, a car
White, shinning with no scar
I want to live in a house sky high
I want to marry, like yours, a pretty wife
With whom i will spend my whole life
Must i leave my childhood days?
Days of romping down the streets

I looked at grandpa and said
I want to be called, like you, a sage
To win accolades with my old age
I want to sit with my grandchildren someday
To tell to them the life's best ways
Must i leave my childhood day?
Days of romping down the streets

After old age it's nothing but death
Oh sad! I wish never to die
I wish time take its last chime
And stay forever calm
That i may enjoy my days
Of romping down the streets

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
