Oh Maw! Brought to mind this fading follow-up, written by DD3: Changes A little girl with her chubby round face Around her neck, a collar of lace, Swinging so carefree With the sun in her eyes, Clutching the handle, Up and up she flies.
How life has changed Since that day in summer, I have met new people, And grown up with others.
My mind has matured, No longer do I wear, The dresses in my cupboard, Or that blue ribbon in my hair.
I still have that swing, Where my childhood still reigns, But I'm no longer a little girl. I am 10 years of age!
