Backyard Adventure




Placeholder ImageBy Gary Agurries


As I extend my arms and run in a circle as if I was free.

I sang a whimsical song and climbed that old oak tree,

I rolled on the lawn and did a back handspring

I recited nursery rhymes, amd spent the afternoon whistling,

I ate three ice creams from a passing ice cream truck.

I got on a skateboard, and rode it on my butt.

I organized trucks in a pretend traffic formed line,

I sat on the porch and seen how many insects I could find.

It began to get dark as a car pulled up the driveway

Time to go inside, I was finished… I had playing all day

As my wife looked at me, I was filthy with grass stains on my knees.

I explained I was stuck outside. because in my car.. I locked my keys.

I love music and it's lyrics, my song writing days are still in me. Just a little more poetic now.
