When I Was Young - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

When I was young I liked to see
The smiles on people's faces
Droll puppies running ‘round a tree
In sunny summer races

Time came and bigger things replaced
Those tiny times of glee
I spent my time on worthy things
Fine jobs, fine homes, degrees

Now that I'm old my days revolve
In search of quiet places
A park bench where I'm sure to see
Pups romp and smiling faces.
