The pleasures were simpler back then:
A chalkboard—all green—and some chalk;
A cat that was bad and a dog that was good;
An over-cooked meal with canned plums for dessert.
Yes, pleasures were simpler back then.
The terrors were simpler then, too:
Don't fall through the grate in the floor!
Be careful—don't drop in your toys.
What falls through that grate in the floor
May fall all the way to the fire.
Yes, terrors were simpler back then.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.
1Corinthians 13:11 ESV
