Thursday photo prompt – Gate – #writephoto


This used to be our garden
We ran, spun and had fun
The old oak tree by the fence
We were loud and had some pun

We were brash and made pretence
Quite rambunctious, no offense
Running till we were breathless
Between us, we had sixpence

This gate used to creak, no fuss
Playing hide and seek with us
Outside until we were tanned
The world was vast, was bonus

This used to be our dreamland
Played everywhere and the sand
We grew up fast, world expand
This was our gate, always grand*
