"The Anticipation Of No School Day"
By Amber Moonstone 3/17/07
The sound of sleet hitting my window
brings me to a time of complete innocence.
The tender years of my childhood:
The excitement built as each snowflake fell,
wishing that there would be no school bell.
Praying for the sleet to come during the night.
and waking with such delight!
Gazing out at the mounds of snow
You knew in an instant you wouldn't have to go.
Freedom from the routine of school that day.
Knowing that you would be allowed to just play!
The skates would come on,
and you would race around the pond.
Pretending to be Dorothy Hamill.
while attempting her camel!
Doing figure eights on the ice
and falling down once or twice.
Laughing till your eyes were tearing.
always playing and never fearing.
Yes the innocent youth of snow filled plays,
anticipating no school days!
Author's Notes: I am listening to the sleet, and remembering with tenderness how it was to be a young girl of 10 and wishing for all this winter snowfall. Well at this moment in my life, I would love to be that carefree little girl and put my skates on and try to do those jumps like that beautiful Dorothy Hamill....
For all that lived their childhood in the early 60's You can remember how innocent our childhood really was! We actually enjoyed playing out in mother nature. Oh to the good old days! Come on join me and come out and play!
To Peace, love, Light, and beautiful carefree play,
