Can't go back to Snowflake Mountain

Can’t go back to Snowflake Mountain

 

I can’t ever return to Snowflake Mountain

As magical as fireworks over a water fountain,

 Image result for classic patriotic fire work dsiplays

The illusion of my childhood memory

My recollection of a joyous jamboree,

 

Musical chairs and homemade pies

All the neighbors with such close ties,

 Image result for picnics in US parks art

Schools that actually taught about the facts

Shop for your Christmas tree with an axe,

 

You took your dog with you to the creek

Polishing up on your crappie fishing technique,

 Image result for kids fishing in a creek art

The smell of cookies in the air

Your next of kin were always there,

 

Picnics beneath the shade of the trees

Well-mannered children saying, “Please.”

 Image result for children kneeling to pray

They said, "God bless you,” if you sneezed

They weren’t too proud to pray on their knees,

 

This was once real life not just a fantasy

Snowflake Mountain was once a reality,

Image result for Kneeling to God

We weren't afraid of any clowns 

When the circus came to town,

 

You didn’t steal or pull a knife

You didn’t have an affair with the neighbor’s wife,

 Image result for placid neighborhoods in US art

Terrorism wasn’t a household word

Drag Queens were considered so absurd,

 

I can’t go home to Snowflake Mountain

If I could pay to go back I’d put any amount in.

Perfect response to the “Sugar Mountain” shite from the faux “summer of love”

That's good Doc V -a  young niece liked it said it reminded her of her grandpa talking about the old days remembering the good times, smiling as she recalled it.

Doc V what a sweet little poem. I'll save it to my reading list. It bounces along nicely with mostly recognition of joy expressed and creates a feeling of lost wonder. I would only twink two little lines to put in in the home school collection. Here are my changes ... "  (The inclusion of childhood memory)"- my recollection of joyous jamboree. and .... -You didn't steal or pull a knife "( Have any affair with trouble or strife )" hope you approve.

"Destroying the New World Order"
