Camping Trip - Poem by John Salome

Everyone needs to go camping,
For at least a night or two.
Take a hike. go swimming, and enjoy the outdoors,
There are a lot of things to do.
Start planning for a fun-filled trip,
It will never be a fuss.
Check out your map for some places to stay,
Pack your bags and jump on the bus.
Spending a weekend in a tent,
Can be fun anytime of the year.
Just be sure for a rustic time,
By taking the proper camping gear.
Pack up a good sized food bin,
And make sure it will suffice.
Plenty of bacon, baked beans and marshmallows,
Trail mix would be nice.
Make sure you packed your bathing suit,
Go swimming in a nearby lake.
Wade and splash or just cool off,
The many pictures you should take.
When darkness hits your doorstep,
Make a fire with the wood you find.
Reminisce about the adventures accomplished,
Or just do so, in your mind.
As the light descends beyond the hills,
It’s the time enjoyed most of all.
The sun makes her last appearance,
And the moon makes his first call.
The moment this all happens,
It makes it difficult to refrain.
From getting excited for the morning,
To do it all again.
