    Poem

    A clock is wound
    Round and around
    To tell the time of day

    Asleep at night
    That we may work
    To make the time to play

    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
