Childhood summers – Jan 11 small stone

One creates a new world of chalk, on empty neighbourhood pavements –
“To get to this country the road takes you to the harbour, then you take a boat to Lyttleton, to Australia, then it takes you to England and New York. This is a crazy country, so crazy!”

One sulks indoors, camped in Wardrobe, complaining
“There’s nothing to do”
When did that happen – that a thousand possibilities
reduced to nothing?

  1. Great contrasts here, both true…
    I was wondering what triggered the memories of summerfror you, but then i reealised of course that’s your experience right now, whilst we are in midwinter (warm though it is!) More contrasts, both true … just depends where you are!!
