  1. Love this! I grew up on a farm and had 40 acres of woods for a playground. I don’t remember how old I was when my dad taught me how to “skin cats”. That is what he called climbing to the top of young trees and riding them back to earth. When I became a father and my son was big enough I taught him. Now I am teaching my grandsons. In a world filled with hustle and bustle and video games the simple joy of “skinning cats” has been all but lost. Beautiful poem!
