With Salt in my Strands

January 22, 2009
By Becki Steinberg, Avon, CT

With salt in my strands
And sea in my shoes
I am summer,
I am free.

With movies on my mind
And maple syrup in my mouth
I am messy,
I am joy.

With rocks at my roots
And root beer in my realm,
I am reaching,
I am sound.

With lemonade on my lips
And laughter in my layers
I am limitless,
I am young.

With barbeque on my breath
And bike rides in my bones
I am beautiful,
I am happy.

With carousels round the corner
And castles of my creation
I am Cape Cod,
I am live.
