Youthful frivolity I seek
of carefree, bygone days. Time ticked
tocked, skipped along, unrestricted
search for joy, wonder and mystique.
How I long to splash in puddles
joy-filled laughter bursting, bubbling
exploding, body bent, doubling
over, daily grind and troubles
cast aside, the expectation?
Breathless at the end of the day;
tomorrow a joyous bouquet
of childlike anticipation.

This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's "Mini-Challenge for Sunday - Envelopes" it was a structured rhyming poem... not the easiest thing for me to do. If you are interested in finding out the full details of the "Envelope Stanza" Kerry O'Connor did a great job explaining it in the link above.
