A Tractor

As a little boy
I had a tractor. 
I "thppppppddd" that tractor
'Round the floor
And planted the carpet with seed.

Now in my thirties
I rode in a tractor.
It churned along
And lo and behold
The field was planted with seed.

One day, maybe,
I'll drive a tractor.
I'll steer it with both arms
And keep to the middle of the field
Strewing seed hither and yon
(And not crashing!)

I like how you remember your childhood in connection with the now.
