The shouts of children playing,
Bring back my happy youth.
To recall the time I was ten,
And lost a good front tooth.

Piled three kids on a sled,
Just room enough for me.
Glided smoothly down the hill,
Until we hit that tree.

Pulled myself together,
Surveyed my only sled.
Thought sadly how it looked,
When it was shiny new and red.

Suddenly I stopped,
Put my hand up to my face.
Found that where a tooth should be,
I had an empty space.

Went yelling home to mother,
Quite sure I'd soon be dead.
But next day I was out again,
With a battered paintless sled.

Oh Shaun I have just found this fantastic poem! Such wonderfully evocative memories stirred up by your words...such a well deserved full mark! ! ! I could read this time and time again and be transported back to when I was 8 years old and on roller skates for the first time and came home with grazed bloodies knees but thrilled that i could skate- well kind of! Thank you so much for sharing this with us..It made my day. Stay fit, well and happy my friend xx Lodigiana
