Once again, it’s Thursday, so that means it’s poetry day with Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats.
The photo Pam provided for this week’s inspiration was especially fun.
Although I didn’t grow up in the 1950’s, my two older sisters did. So I enjoyed writing this poem:
Ponytails and bobby socks
poodle skirts, rockin’ round the clock.
Elvis’s swivel, Chubby Checker’s twist,
our favorite songs on the Hit Parade list.
“Bad” boys with heel taps were so very cool,
and we rushed home to see Bandstand after school.
The music then was the best we’ve heard,
and we still remember every word.
Those black and white snapshots are silent reminders
of a simpler time when the world was kinder.
Memories take us back, that’s the only way;
the question is: if you could….would you stay?
Thanks, Pam, for hosting this fun meme every week.
