That Was Summer
Jared, Age 10, Kelowna, BC

Remember that time when
you saw that hummingbird
buzzing around the feeder
trying to stick in its long beak
to get some nectar?

Remember that time when
you heard the ice cream truck
play its jolly little jingle
to attract the kids and
you bought a cone with your friend?

Remember that time when
you picked the raspberries
off the bush and
you stained your shirt
but you didn't care
because they were so good?

Remember that time when
you smelled the barbecue
roasting the juicy
red steak that
you wanted to grab
off the burner?

Remember that time when
you took a handful
of sand and let it
slowly sift through your
fingers and you felt
it slide away?

That was summer.
