Some Roads


Some folks celebrate Christmas in July, so why not  sledding in August. I thought this bit of nostalgia might compensate for the midsummer heat we all seem to be experiencing.

There was a time when

Roads were built around buildings

Making Sledding fun

Afternoon snowmelt freezes

Kids in parkas sailed down the hill

Temperatures falling

No one seemed to mind the cold

Pulling sleds uphill

Riding in the full moon’s light

No technology needed

Great fun and fresh air

Mama’s calling  from the porch

“It’s time to come in!”

Children slept soundly // dreaming

Of  “No School!” and sled riding
