Almost Six


This is me at almost-six.
Happy in my roguish tricks;
Handsome devil I was then,
Full of dreams that might-have-been –

If I was back there again,
I’d, no doubt, do what I did;
For, we’re always “us” at heart,
That’s a fate that none can rid –

So I’d laugh and cry and run,
Trip and fall and skin my knees;
Drive my older brother nuts,
Get my pizza with plain cheese –

Read and read and read and read –
That’s what I did at that age;
If I did go back again,
I’d devour every page

Just as I did way back then.
I can’t say those days I miss:
All they were is what they were —
Food for kindly prompts
