Contrasting times

green_world 

 

 

 

 

Chirping birds, innocent laughter

 Vibrant butterflies children ran after

 Oh, dew on roses, green grass and trees

 No smog in the morning, cool evening breeze.

 

No asthma or SARS

No late night TV hours

Books were companion to the children

Oh, the olden days were golden.

 

Grandpa, Grandma, uncles and aunts

Giant families had huge children gangs

Sharing, caring, loving together

Life was fun and simple rather.

 

No hectic pace, no mad race

Writing letters was people’s craze

Honesty, integrity took precedence

Over money, power and influence

 

No terrorist attacks, no war cry

No orphan, injured children, no wet eye

How green was the valley 100 years ago

I wonder the robotic generation would ever know!
