Winters Long Ago

written by: Ruth Owens


In winters long ago we played out in the snow.
Using plastic sledges cheap
And light
Which sped us down the snow covered hill as if we'd taken flight.
I had no fear then of falling in the snow.
of damaging a hip or knee and ending up in A & E.
I slipped and fell three times one year but bounced up like a weeble.
But nowadays I feel more feeble.
When Ice and snow are on the ground.
Outside I am nowhere to be found
