Ice on the cement bench
Slowly melting in the rays
Of summer sunlight
Slowly sliding down
Reminding me to wet my lips
And speak

Of days when girls
Would wear linen skirts
And children would play
With hot plastic cars
Rolling down the sidewalk
Skidding to a halt
As they reach a crack
Overgrown with dry grass

Of days when lemonade
Will only quench your thirst
Soothing your throat
Allowing you to speak once more
Of days to come.
