My Childhood

November 12th,2012

What happened to old days, what happened to childhood?
Plants of Paddy, jute, banana and mango trees were so good!
With cows, goats, animals and nature too much fun!
In rivers, canals, ponds with fishing and swim done! !

I had no fear from humans, except unseen ghost!
I climbed up trees, walked through jungles most!
Those golden years were rich with joyous moods!
Cakes, juices, fruits, dates enormous foods! !

We used to walk in bare feet, even to go to school!
With density of hairs, happy go lucky by being cool!
Memorizing poems and multiplications, all in chorus!
Love and respect to parents, pundits and teachers! !

Played in the afternoon by using grape fruit as football!
Never bored in spring, summer, autumn and fall!
No pollution and dust seen and the sky was clear!
We had pure air and we lived on only pond water! !

Childhood years, the best with rich joyous moods!
Cakes, juices, fruits, dates enormous foods!
My beloved brothers and sisters were not loud!
Where are they now, lost in today's crowd! !

No electricity, no city, only country side was prime!
In hurricane lights, we did home works in evening time!
But in soundless nights, I often had nightmares!
My outcry used to be from dreams of the future dangers! !

What happened to old days, what happened to childhood?
Plants of paddy, jute, banana and mango trees were so good?
With cows, goats, animals and nature too much fun!
In rivers, canals, ponds with fishing and swim done! !
