Youth - Poem by Gordon Jerome

I remember my youth of days long past
My how the years go by so fast
Ten-cent sodas and the all day sucker
Pixie stixs that made you pucker
Banana seat bikes and drive in shows
Cooling off with the garden hose
Televisions pictures in black and white
Three whole channels four at night
Red Skelton and Gleason Ed Sullivan too
We all loved his really big shoo
Golden oldies were back then a new hit
And records sat where cd’s now sit
I remember green stamps and ethyl gas
And not giving grownups any sass
Air-mail letters and the old rotary phone
My first double dip ice cream cone
Sliding in socks on our hard wood floors
Earning allowance for daily chores
God bless mom and dad for all that they did
To raise up a man from this little kid.
“closing thought”
Your past is the foundation upon which you stand tall
Hold tight to your roots so you never may fall
