Childhood Memories One: Great Spirit Of Childhood Adventures - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

down the rabbit hole
of childhood memories
we tumble into lost world

watching Tobby Grandma’s dog
leap with incredible canine joy
baited by tumbling flowing water

of garden hose patterned fountains
my Father makes beside the path above
grass to entice Tobbies aerial antics

somersaults all viewing smile must
delight in, like magic, Tobby appears
across paddock with elfin liquid speed

always seeming to know when Father
waters the vegetable garden with sixth
dog sense following nose on summer

days yesteryear breezes leaps small boys
also into a myriad of adventures running
in fleeting moccasin grasses like an Indian

running playing chase in tall tree branches
with imaginative spirit that knew Great Spirit
despite an ocean of time and cultural difference
