Those cherished childhood memories
Crushing frogs with rocks
Eating Chips Ahoy! until we threw up
Again and again
Chasing cats on our bikes
On a cool summer’s day
Stealing big bras from the T. J. Maxx
And daring to dream that those halcyon days
Would never end

(This is inspired by a lecture I attended in which the speaker showed a photo of some little boys crushing frogs with rocks. He stated it was a good illustration of  interactions with nature, and implied that most of us, as children, probably did likewise!)

  1. Halcyon days indeed! I think you should have included your cruel remark about dirt bikes. :D
