Poetic Thursday time again, hosted by Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats. This is our photo inspiration for today’s poem. What an interesting picture.
Below is my poem. I couldn’t stop writing!
Back In The Day
A fun picture with memories of days gone by.
What was the first thing to catch your eye?
Sweet Raggedy Ann doll in the high chair.
Friends came for playtime, and we learned to share.
Ice skates, roller skates, carefree days at the rink;
we didn’t know those times would go by in a blink.
A rotary dial phone – that was the thing.
Party lines! A long and a short was our ring.
Mom sewed on an old treadle sewing machine;
Barbie clothes, slipcovers and everything in between.
A Beatles record: we loved the Fab Four,
and an Elvis album from a few years before.
We were mesmerized by the blobs in that lava lamp,
and the old suitcase carried our clothes to camp.
A manual typewriter, when have you seen one of these?
Typing class: “fingers on the home row keys”.
A staged photo, perhaps, but what a display.
Which of these do you remember from back in the day?
