Childhood Memories--By Beth Winchcombe--England

Childhood Memories

The aroma of hops
wafting forth, as I
pass the High Street Brewery!

The unique white suspension bridge
with slatted wooden walkway,
where the river flows beneath -
puts fear in my childlike heart!

Grandparents live nearby,
in their quaint cottage
reflect an image of quaint shops
full of candy in jars.

Candy, my mouth salivates,
Granny quells my longing for candy-
she buys me some to take home -
she loves me, I love her!

The nearby park, a square corner
cordoned off with swings.
A playground full of happy delight
for any child or parent...
...my birthplace;

Beth Winchcombe is now a retired housewife and enjoys writing poetry, also painting in oils.  She lives in Derbyshire, England.
