Sunday's Whirligig's 12 given words:
nursery school stories lost middle upset 
older, lunches wait dance week treatment

3WW given words:
treatment unruly veiled 

Ever remembered when one was in nursery school?
Of stories good and bad of concern to worried parents
Lost in the middle of the crowd of young  friends
Getting upset many times over for no apparent reasons

Ever remembered when older had to bring lunches
Had to wait in line for popular events that one fancied
Tea dance on weekends as a prelude to formal ballroom
Of cold treatment given for unruly behaviour as teens

Ever remembered all these goings-on as strategised
Of the veiled attempts mostly to hide the real intentions
Of trying hard for the attention of the teenyboppers

Ever remembered the carefree days of innocence!

  2. Those were the carefree days of innocence Hank ~

  3. You make those carefree days of innocence seem as stressful as they probably were.

  4. Even carefree days of innocence had their pros and cons. A good one Hank :)

  5. Sure carefree days indeed, but everything comes with a downside.

  6. Ah, the carefree days of innocence. I suppose even then had its upsets and worries. Maybe we just remember them differently as we age so that they seem more carefree than they actually were. Nice write.

  7. ah yes the days of youth, confusion and happiness, emotions turning on a dime
