I'll never forget times spent on the muddy banks

The canal where eel's and schools of fish swam

Oh, what a time we had

sliding from the muddy banks into the clear beautiful water

where for a moment, the joyous laughter of Children echoed

Not knowing the implication

That poverty was the legacy left to us

Innocent of the associated stigma, We played

An Uncle not much older, but wise beyond his years

made a lavish meal of "Peppa pot", and fried wild eel

There on the banks of the beautiful canal flowing free, water lilies sprouted

The big tree that majestically grew In the front of the yard

Sheltered me from the rays of the Sun as I read or played

I'd skip and pick of succulent fruits, along the banks of the canal

untouched by the shame of poverty

For: A memory of living with my Mothers Brothers and Sisters on the banks of the Canal. On this particular Day, it was really fun. My Uncle Banny, I have forgotten a great many things, but this one memory still lingers favorably.
