A Tale of Two Summers

My day
Maddie’s day

In my office
At grandmas

Buried under piles of paperwork
Blowing bubbles

Moving mountains of books
Planting strawberries

Reading page after page of notes
Splashing in the pool

Stacking binders to bring home
Chasing after grandpa with a water gun

Making lists of exciting to-dos
Stirring lemonade

Getting office supply giddy
Cruising the street on a pink scooter

Anticipating the possibilities
Relishing each moment

My summer
Maddie’s summer

We hope to meet in the middle soon

  1. I love this poem. What a great way to show two sides of a story. I’m going to have to save this for next fall. I bet I’ll get some interesting ones when I try it with my creative writing students!
