Bartleby Snopes has selected an excellent recollection of childhood memory in the short story, "The Stana Yurich Snatching," by Refe Tuma (@RefeUp) The story is economical in its verse and holds up well to first person narrative. I found myself reading it aloud as an old man recalling a childhood memory. Highly recommended.
