Down by the Waterhole

Seizing the Moment

by Joanne Troppello

Down by the waterhole children play,

finding amusement by a 200 year old oak.

Rounded trunk supports the branch

upon which hangs their coiled rope swing.

Wet bodies glisten in the sun as arms and

legs flail in flight through the air to the water.

Screams of delight fill the summer air,

such fun this old oak tree brings.

Boys and girls dream they are noble Lords

and Ladies of ancient Camelot as they play.

Down by the waterhole children play.

Young minds only focused on seizing the moment.
