Written for: Creative Bloomings, “Camp Dance; Summer Romance”
We’re winding down this month of camping. And we always celebrate it with the Camp Dance. Maybe we met new friends and earned new infatuations; maybe we re-kindled old acquaintances. Either way, we want you to write a summer romance (love) poem.
Cody asked Charlotte if she’d like to dance.
Charlotte had thought she did not have a chance,
’cause Marsha posed like a movie star,
batted long lashes at him from afar.
Beth had eyes of cobalt blue,
and jet black hair in a fancy do.
Cody and Charlotte danced all night;
they later star-gazed by firelight.
With only one week to go until camp’s end,
they were inseparable, rounding each bend.
The two exchanged addresses, pledging to write
every day of their love so bright.
Cody gave Charlotte a wood-carved rose;
they swore they’d marry, but you know how that goes.
