Poem: Fields of Green

When once we played in fields of green
Grand meadows and summer sun
In Chuck Taylors with torn blue jeans
Climbing trees and having fun

   Street hockey on a vacant lot
   Sailing frisbees through the air
   Building sand castles near the lake
   Living life without a care

Now, days are short and time precious
Yet the child inside still plays
Drifting on dreams of yesteryear
To the spring of happy days
