Summertime (Take it away, Miss Ella!)

Game Dice

by Artemis Greenleaf

.

Summertime

And the children are restless

Chutes and Ladders

And lots of Lego.

 

Oh, we read out loud

Now my voice is so croaky

A book full of stories

All about ghosts.

 

Maybe in evening

And sweet kids lie dreaming

I’ll make my word count

And edit my podcast

 

But until that evening

A dinner needs cooking

Tired daddy comes home hungry and frazzled

 

Summertime

Children are busy

Swimming lessons

And playdates with friends

 

Time flashes past

Deadlines a hurtlin’ by

So little children,

What game is next?
