Cape Cousins

by Gretchen Armer 6 months ago in love poems

A Summer Worth Repeating Sonnet

Near the house in Orleans, Cape Cod

How seven years of innocence escapes?

Since the inlet from the house through the reeds

Kids roaming breakers at the beauty gates

Adventure and friendship our ocean feeds

Nauset Beach, Cape Cod

Dolls in the turret I know we still share

Magic aunts create forts of the blankets

Grandpa waiting steak scallops and lobster

Ice cream ready for laughs on the sunsets

Surf and Turf, Cape Cod

Climb past the destiny schools and their clocks

To get back for Walt's boat and fair pilgrims

Right now it seems we never left these rocks

Meet us here, all this love, country cousins

West Yarmouth, Cape Cod

Time holds our castles and clams by the sea

August I hug you and you shall hug me

Cousins in 2014; a Cape reunion planned for August 2021
