My Childhood

Contentment was the shelter found
Within my Dad’s commodious arms,
Within a cozy  favorite nook,
Within a new adventure book

Contentment was uncounted hours  
In playing dolls with my best friend, 
In riding bikes, or camped with a torch,
In family card games on our screened porch.

Contentment was the bonds I formed
Within the town I knew so well,
Within my school--a melded part,
Within a  family close at  heart.
