Long Island: Baiting Hollow Bliss

Down the steep
twisted hill we ride,
looking for water -
hope it’s high tide!

Bags full of goodies,
blankets and chairs,
Aunt Louise ‘n Laura
no worries, no cares.

Bologna sandwiches
with mayonnaise,
peanut butter ‘n jelly -
those were the days!

Animal crackers,
Squirrel Nut chews,
Kool Aid ‘n cups -
Who could refuse?

A sweet, juicy plum,
a succulent peach,
a handful of cherries -
lunch at the beach!

Tar in the water,
swimming in shoes,
too many rocks -
which to choose?

Flat skipping stones,
chocolate chip faces,
great big boulders -
fun climbing places.

Inner tube yachts,
paddling in style,
diving for coins on
the sandbar awhile.

Horseshoe crabs,
jellyfish galore,
seaweed dried 
along the shore.

Tall sandy cliffs,
driftwood ‘n shells,
bungalow houses -
Good Humor bells.

Creamsicle orange,
Fudgesicle brown,
smiles on a stick
no place to frown.

Soon it’s time 
to call it a day,
we pack it all up ‘n
go driving away.

Up the big hill,
wind in our hair;
oh what fun we
had again there!
