Days Gone By

"It's Just a Thought" – Poems dedicated to my wonderful family who always have given me much love and for which I am most grateful...


Oh I remember it oh so well

Bologna, wax paper I could tell

Delicious aromas, cool drinks to go

Mama was planning a picnic and off we would go

The aunts and uncles would meet under “our tree”

Prospect Park was our estate to our family

The blankets covered the grass and music filled the air

Laughter, old stories we didn’t have a care

Beautiful memories of days that have passed

When happiness came just be sitting on the grass

Eating, family a really happy day

Just being together, what more can I say.

Hi Dorothy, We've still enjoy reading your poetry...your thoughtfulness has sustained us in difficult times... and your special humor has entertained us - especially with that common "plumber" friend we share.... Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas Bill Tinsley
