Oh! Childhood Memories  

Oh! Childhood Memories

OH! Do you remember the first time you climbed a tree
The first time you fell off your bike and scratch your knee
Oh! And the time dad let go, off you went on the first ride
Fiends come round to play; all excited whose turn to hide

Oh! Yes and the smile when the ice cream van was near
All the children running to it laughing and full of cheer
Oh! In the playground with the swings and roundabouts
Mums sitting on the bench, be careful you hear her shout

OH! Rushing down to the beach, bucket and spade in hand
Building castles with moats, lollipop, sticks, flags and sand
Oh! Rushing to the water’s edge, being splashed with spray
All excited watching the seagulls swooping and flying away

Oh! The first day at school, this was scary for a short while
Then new friends in the playground made you sit and smile
Oh! The first time you were allowed to go to the corner shop
And adventure this was, going to buy a sweet and ice pop

This poem could go on forever but there’s just not time you see
Oh! But I hope this little poem of mine, helps you remember
Your own childhood memories

Very nice
Hey thanks for sharing the write, it really brought some old memories back to my mind. Learning to ride the bike, this is one I'll never forget for sure. My brothers got me started down the hill, but they did not tell me how to stop when it came time to stop.
A lot of good memories from your words.
Thanks again.
