Lost In Toyland

IMG_0039Days of Fun in Sand and Snow

With Cherished childhood toys.

Imaginary roads brought joy

and hours of play 

 for little girls and boys.

Wrapped and Found beneath a tree, disguised

 as christmas presents,

Giant projects filled their thoughts,

and play became more pleasant.

Now, safely resting on a shelf

in colorful display,

Grown construction engineers

Enjoy them still,

today.

God bless the folks who built the roads

to help

our highways last.

  Who’s to say those yellow trucks are now

 things of the past?

Sons and daughters, grand-kids too,

Can see the love that shows

When grandpa shares his Tonka toys with thoughts

 of long ago.
