The child in me,

wants to go for a joyous sunny ride.

Despite the heat, and all the grime,

wants to go  picnicking,

like the ones Enid* described.

Fruits and sandwiches,

juices and cakes,

carefully packed in the hampers,

for us to take away.

Along the green pastures,

rivers and dales,

we spot our place,

under the soothing tree shade.

The child in me,

wants some fun, some frolic,

at the end of the day.

* Enid refers to the famous British children’s writer – Enid Blyton. I still adore her books and read them once in a while to rejoice the joy of childhood days.
