Just an old photograph

Just an old photograph

Just an old photograph that someone put on Facebook
So I zoom in on the faces and I take another look
Wait a minute as I stare and I ponder
There is that strange feeling wells up inside of me with astonishment and wonder

Wow isn’t Facebook wonderful and how on earth can this be ?
That one of these little faces staring back on the bottom row is actually me
Well tho I have no recollection of this event at all I presume it was a photo shoot of children inside a school hall

Mind you I only look about two or three with that fringe that my Dad always cut so haphazardly
I can’t quite believe it, how dark is my hair ? considering today it is completely white everywhere
But there you jolly well go
A photograph does not lie you know
Me and my innocence in all it’s glory
from almost sixty years ago telling a true story
