Oasis At Amberly - Poem by JOHNNY COBB

When that hot July sun beats down on us
And we want a cool, wet oasis
The neighborhood swim club at Amberly
Is one of our favorite places.

Greet your friends as you go find a table
Under the shade of ancient oaks and pines.
Gentle summer breezes will bring your way
The fragrance of honeysuckle vines.

Among morning glories and crape myrtles
That colorfully surround the two pools
Recapture the nostalgia of childhood.
It's the best summer spot to keep cool.

Bring your family and all of the kids
Or meet your neighbors if you come solo.
Plenty of children would love you to play
A game of 'colors' or 'Marco Polo'.

So grab your ice chest and suntan lotion
To find some relief from that sizzling sun.
Head to the oasis at Amberly
Not much will beat this for family fun!
