Neighborhood Growing Up

Baseball, kickball, football
Well played in the vacant lot
By neighborhood kids
Of all ages
From eight to teen years 
Back in the '50’s lean years
In the neighborhood 
Growing up

Back when kids went barefoot
Catching fireflies at dusk
Before kids were not scared
Of "catching bugs" of a different kind
Where butterflies flew freely
For all to see and admire
In the neighborhood
Growing up
