Brook Adventures
~ Carole McLaughlin ~

Two boys, two poles, a perfect summer day
Worms, bare feet and baseball caps
to the brook!
they're on their way

two boys, a rubber boat and oars
laughter and giggles,
toes that wiggle
pushing off for distant shores

to the brook - they race each other
a sunny day
best place to play
build a dock, brother helping brother

pirates, boat rides - fifty cents each time
smiles wide
approaching the other side
boat flips, feet touch bottom - gooey slime!

rocks to walk across, minnows in the net
adventures Many
fish not any
a carefree summer they'll not forget
