5. Holidays

The train rides were always fun
Going uphill, downhill, and through tunnels
Grandma was awesome at minding us all
With the youngest in hand and seven in tow
The fresh air always hit us as soon as the train would leave
It was only a short walk to the estate home
Where rubber trees grew and goats lined the yard
Holidays were special ‘coz this place was special
Learning to wash in the river and taking the goats to graze
It was full of childhood laughter amidst some silly antics
How I long for those carefree days roaming the estates
