    POEM # 344

    NOSTALGIA
    When I was young and but a growing lad,
    Fuchsia the color and peg pants the fad.
    Boys wore PF. FLYERS, some wore KEDS,
    Girls painted their nails fiery colors of reds.
    Pabst Blue Ribbon, brought you the fights,
    Just after the Big Story on Friday nights.
    Packard was the one for fifty one, what a car,
    Jolting Joe DiMaggio, the super baseball star.
    Marilyn Monroe was the newest movie queen,
    Male movie star, young heart throb James Dean.
    For only a dime you could eat or travel far,
    Watch Mother can fruit in a blue mason jar.
    Send a letter coast to coast, for less than a nickel,
    Stop at your corner market for a giant pickle.
    Milk, bread, pastries delivered to your door,
    Shop up town at the giant A&P grocery store.
    Saturday morning cartoon day at the movie show,
    Mother would give a nickel, dime or quarter to go.
    Sundays for the LORD, then taking a long car ride,
    Church then dinner, then looking at the country side.
    Memories forever locked away in my mind,
    All in color, beautiful, gentle, precious and kind.
