The Hay Day


When in the hay I did play:
My friends and I really had fun:
Our life has just begun:
We rolled and tumbled and inside did peek:
For the needle we did seek:

No fear of spiders or bugs:
Just at each other we did tug:
I wanted to be first to get to the top:
And from the haystack to drop:

Now they are round no fun at all:
Because for them I'm  too tall:
But I bet they could still be fun:
If the climb was with the right one:

The laughter and joy will always be:
The memory is still here for me to see
