MEMORIES OF SUMMER BY THE LAKE
Sun-kissed children work throughout the afternoon
building an elaborate castle.
A distant automobile shimmers in the heat, picking
its way along the endless curve of sand.
A seagull darts lower to inspect Papa snoozing in
The smell of the campfire...
the buzz of mosquitoes...
the glow of the lantern...
the taste of ice cream on a hot day!
These are the memories of summers by the lake.
