Shining Summer City on The Hill

Girls Rule!

Prompt #2 from today's Writer's Workshop: Find your one very favorite picture of Summer and write a poem about it.

Climbing The Hill Again
By Mrs. Scribe

I think that I shall never see

as many bellybuttons as Ye

Olde Swimming Hole has in the summer;

without the chlorine, life's just a bummer.

My kids are almost grown & gone

but I insist on hanging on.

We call this hole The Hill for cause

its crazy hijinx give us pause.

The Scribes, we host a yearly party

of 60 girls, who party hearty.

My girls, they are the Coaches Royale

and the swimmers to my kids are loyal.

For 16 summers we've been going

up to The Hill, but time is slowing.

When Una y Dos are then long gone,

will Mrs. Scribe keep hanging on?

Your fond memories of The Hill,
You'll find,
Will only increase in time,
And the Hill will still be,
If you see,
It's time to move on.
