Day 111 Summer Delights

Cherry_Ice_Cream_Bar Summer small

Summer time.

Walking to Elks Public Pool

Barefoot in swim suit,

towel over the shoulder;

Seven blocks

walking in every bit of shade–

running across

the sunny sidewalk

searing hot,

a quarter in hand

to slip inside

to dive into the crystal blue

pool–

for hours

in the sweltering hot sun

until closing–

then a quick stop

at Dad’s work for a nickel

for chocolate dip ice cream

at Dairy Queen, or maybe a dime

for a Dilly Bar.

Summer Delights.
