through center of the tire
hanging from old tree

  9. I loved the simplicity of this Haiku, Annie, reflecting the simplicity that childhood was meant to be. For some it slipped away, from others it was stolen.

  17. Those were such happy days when children were unaware of sophisticated toys and mere tyres and ropes sufficed to give great pleasure!! Beautiful memories revived!!
