(my youngest skipping rocks in the rockies)

A Tricky Fellow

Days grow long
you start having fun
time feels never ending.
You play, you rest
you do your best
to live in the moment you're spending.

Laughing and learning
growing, exploring.
That's what summers are for.
Watching, loving
every moment absorbing
soon it will be no more.

Back to school
oh what a fool!
To think time would stand still.
Allowing me
the time I need
to drink and get my fill.

My kids, my heart,
soon to part
back to the daily grind.
I must embrace
these last few days
as summer must unwind.

Time I tell you
is a tricky fellow.
You think you have forever.
Instead he calls
upon us all.
Summer's end arrives with fervor.

To this I say,
"Enjoy these last days
of rock tossing and sleeping in,
until next school year end
when time once again becomes friend
and another magical summer begins."

~ Lynn Retzlaff
