Let’s Go for a Swim

The dog days of summer are in full swing now, and as the heat persists, so does my desperation to stay cool. Though my writing den *does* have air conditioning, there’s nothing I enjoy more than a cool, refreshing swim after a long week of work. My dog loves it too! So to celebrate, this month’s poem is all about swimming . . .  from the perspective of my pup!

Let’s Go for a Swim
By Katie Gilstrap

Let’s go for a swim in the lake!
We can see all the splashes we make
as we glide through the tide
with our mouths open wide
and our tails in the ebb of the wake!
