Pool Time

Part of Slice of Life at Two Writing Teachers

It’s hot
It’s hot
Let’s go to granny’s pool

Hot Sun
Cold Ice pops
Please stop wrestling in the pool
Feel that sun?
Soak up that Vitamin D!

Boogie boards, destined for the beach
are tables in the pool for
A cut throat game of
Waterproof cards
Draw 4
The color is Blue

Suddenly the clouds disappear
It’s just sun and blue sky
The water is the perfect temperature
It’s time to go
But I’m just going to float for a little longer
Soaking up the warmth
Like Frederick

  1. This sounds so fun. I love that you repeat the “hot sun” in the first two timeframes and that it disappears in the game of waterproof Uno. I never knew there was such a thing. It makes me think you all finally got cool and the last verse confirms it! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love how each stanza builds. It reminded me of the transition from an idea, when you have a few random thoughts, to the execution, when suddenly there are tons of details to attend to.
    I knew right away that the link was going to go to Leo Lionni’s book. ❤️
