2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 11

2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 11

For today’s prompt, pick a season (any season) and make it the title of your poem; then, write your poem. For instance, your poem might be titled “Winter” or “Spring” or “Rabbit Season” (if you have a sense of humor and like Looney Tunes cartoons).

"Summer"

I don't have to grade,
berate,
contemplate my effectiveness
on a generation filled
with teeming apathy.
I've got it made,
in the shade
sipping cool spiked lemonade,
watching the promenade
of my own child
as he struts around the pool,
giving me only hope.
