Get Wet...And Dry Off - Poem by Josephine Lauderdale

I think I got it
You're afraid of being caught
In out and around the house
Of your imagination

With a net in hand
Or both
What is it you might catch?

That makes you afraid?

Too good
Too wonderful
Too 'over the top'

Says who
I know you know
It's not you

But
You are still

Too
Over the top
So we'd beter be careful
And

Not let the secret out

If we did
It
Might blow a big hole
So big we
Would drown

But the sun is out
And it's high hunidity

I am hot and
I want to take a swim

Are you in?

Or do you still need a life raft?

If you use it
Still you know

You can not have broad strokes
And you
Might not be able to glide

The water might turn cold
As you are not moving
To keep yourself warm

So swim just this once

There is always a towel waiting
