Sometimes, this old house gets lonely...

Once in a While

by Y. M. Roger

     Over the back fence, children play,
     Now there’re two…sometimes many more -
     Chortles and squeals ignite the air
     Each time I crack that ol' back door...
     It really seems quite hard to think,
     Not even two decades ago,
     A joyful din of our tykes’ cries
     Would dance ‘round that aging willow...
     How the time flew and now they’re gone -
     I’m left with mem’ries and a smile.
     Lord, just to hear their small voices
     Even if but once in a while…
