I Played Since Little - Poem by edward serof

I played since little till I grew tall,
Knew more then how than know now that's all.
Saw simple swing from grabby tree,
Heard best things most when could not see-

Jumped far, rode long, ran hard, sang song,
Climbed peaks, crawled caves, wished big, were knaves,
We thought-
Till twilight played, in dreams we fought-

Skint knees, rough feet, peeled nose, great sweat,
Dark thirty, quick bath, good sleep, moon hath-

Canned bliss now fraught with bills for naught
But everything my money's bought.

Boy joy profound, just miss the sound
Of what I thought I'd sought, I found-
