Go Dog Gone


Childhood Revisited

What is your earliest memory? Describe it in detail, and tell us why you think that experience was the one to stick with you.

The first two books came in the mail
And one was “Go Dog Go”,
The other one was “Hop on Pop”,
We read them in a row

I sat with my mom on the couch,
Alight, as each page turned;
As though it was just yesterday
Into my mind it’s burned

From then on, though, I read alone.
My mom said I could do it;
For I’d been reading for so long
That there seemed nothing to it

But not until my later teens
When we read poetry,
Did we e’er sit and read again;
My mom just read with me

And it’s a funny memory,
To read with so much joy:
And yet to feel I missed something
Back when I was
A boy
