Keen Knots (RB)

I remember my childhood distinctly

Good days and bad ones

Playing outside with my siblings

Not having anything to eat

Stuff like that, nothing big

Lots of good memories though

Learning to tie my shoes

No prior knowledge at all

But Pops was very encouraging

Showing me the different knots

Single, double, and triple knots

Bunny ears, through the loops

Under the bridge real quick

Did it so many times

I got tired of it

But I became keen quickly

After a while no longer

Did I need Pops’ help

Good overpowered the bad memories

Wish I could go again
