(my wife and I are taking care of our two great nephews and two great nieces this weekend, ages 9,7,4 and 2.   what a delight!)
 
                      Mud Pies
 
Of men, of maidens, mirth and merriment,
Giggling gaggles of oogling girls,
Bugling boys in bands of regiment,
Twittering, flittering butterfly worlds.
Kittens enthralled, their piece of yarn dangling,
Puppies square off in a shoe tug-of-war,
Marbles and jacks, as well constant wrangling
O'er who will be "it" and who changed the score.
Worlds far apart, these memories linger,
Days in the sun ever falling behind,
Galloping life sticks all in the wringer,
Dalliance slayed on the alter of time.
Now happen you see pies crafted from mud,
Shower the chef who whets memory buds.

How sweet are those memories. I have nephews & nieces, 13 of them. I still try to stay in touch with them. Some of the older ones used to stay with My Mom, Dad and me over a weekend. That was fun. I can identify with your poem.
