Poem: Canoeing Adventure


Canoeing Adventure

by June Nash


When canoeing on the lake

Oh, Surprise! a flip did take

Quick, splash, wet, going under

Confidence torn asunder


Had no breath, held close to boat

Could not find life cushion float

Cold, scared, panic starts to creep

Must hold on, don’t start to weep


From the shore sounds of a laugh

Not a time for one to gaff

“Just stand up and walk to shore

Cannot be waist high or more”
