Mary Mc Creath Poems
Childhood Memories- Childhood Play
In buildings tall with concrete wall,
I came to be.
Twelve families a tenement did
share with me.
Backyard of concrete too did see my play.
Two rooms for shelter eight of us did stay.
The stairs we leapt and slithered down for fun.
The railings climbed,
the smaller buildings too.
The lamp posts used for swinging with a rope.
The enemy were often tied there too.
Cakes from mud with broken china paid.
A piece of chalk and peever beds were laid.
Balls bouncing ‘gainst the wall swayed too and fro,
Count one to ten...the others flee.. search high...
I talked with you
You talked with me
Each of us to be
You showed a way
I've never bin
I followed you
And entered in
I went my way
And so did you
I still am me
And you are you
But what you are
I clearly see
And have it always
Now with me
