Hickory and Dickory

boys

Hickory and Dickory
Raced through the room
Light on their feet
Sat on their brooms

Laughter filled
That once bleak place
Smiles abundant
On each young face

Each free to imagine
Permitted to run
Full of happiness
Teeming with fun

Pretending to be
All they could envision
Not even minding
The occasional collision

Young and certain
Contented as could be
Childish antics
Filling them with glee

Cowboys one second
Witches the next
Other times a monster
No one would expect

The beauty of imagination
Pervading young minds
Makes the rest of us wish
We could press rewind

And although we can’t go back
We can still stay young at heart
We just have to rein in
All those lost images from the start

  1. Time passes. Tick… Tock… This little piggie ran all the way home and he huffed and he puffed and blew the house down and killed little miss muffet and little jack horner while all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again but the three bears ate the little piggie for dinner.
