Rhonda's Day At The Park - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Rhonda Wright where have you been today?
I've been at the Community Park to play
What did you and your friends do to have fun?
I hit the baseball into the lake and made a home run

I pushed Billy on the swing; he fell on the ground
He lay there limply for awhile without a sound
Then finally he moaned and took a deep breath.
He brushed himself off, then ran away and wept.

The slide was very tall and had many humps
I sat on waxed paper and bounced the bumps
I slid so fast that I could not stop and crashed
Striking startled Sally as she gallantly dashed

We had a lunch of hot dogs and potato salad.
As we grilled more dogs and sang a country ballad
it started to rain, so we went to the pavilion
Many ants joined our lunch; I counted a million…

It was very enjoyable, and I want to do it again
For some reason my friends did nothing but complain
I do not understand why they all wanted to go home
They must be suffering from a negative syndrome.

    Great fun even for the ants. So much seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting - you have captured all the senses. I began singing as I was reading. I want to go to the park again with Rhonda and avoid that negative syndrome. I am glad you have grandchildren and can impart your sharings with us. Take us to the park again. (Report)Reply
