Summer is Lost

(We drove through Liberal, Kansas today and noticed this scene)

Fresh, delicious, inviting water

flows freely throughout the many

rides in the large water park

No youthful splashing, jumping, laughing, running

even with the sun scorching through the heavy, humid air

on the sizzling August summer day

Oh, wait!

Summer has ended—school just began

  1. Too bad for the kids, eh? Good poem, but maybe consider breaking your second line between many and rides and see if it doesn’t work well, kind of leaves us hanging at “water flowing through the many” before we look at the next line.
