Et Cetera

August 28, 2017 § Leave a comment



Sunday school, Vacation Bible school,
Christmas, Easter, kindergarten, Cub Scouts,
all at Main Street Methodist (now First United);
Sunday dinner and swimming all summer at the Club.

Fine ArtsDancing lessons from two aunts,
singing from another, and
acting with Naomi Cunningham.

SummertimesEight weeks at upscale Camp Sequoia
when I’m eight years old;
otherwise I’m free as a bird
to roam the neighborhood all day and well past twilight.

My Play Room

The year after we add on (I’m nine)
I commandeer the basement rec room
where I hide out as my childhood
surges painfully  into  adolescence.
