Childhood Is Calling


Childhood Is Calling

Childhood is calling and summer is here
School let out this week; it’s the end of the year
I’m ready for business as usual to end
It’s time to play and it’s time to pretend

To walk in the mountains and down in the valleys
Stay up late and sleep in and take time to dally
Beside every flower, and stream, and sunset
And know all the best things have not happened yet!

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
