Bicycles and Dirt Roads

Some summers seem to last forever.

From early in the morning till supper time

We rode those bikes fearlessly all day long.

A big deal for kids not even age nine

A summer to remember like a song.

In a rural area legends we were

We traveled from end to end of the county.

To see wonders our large world offered

And curiosities we saw a’plenty.

Peering fearlessly down uncovered wells

Wading into forbidden lakes and ponds

A secret summer we would never tell

A summer to create a lifelong bond.

When she moved away that cold, cold winter,

We vowed our bond would never be hindered.
