Sugarfoot Pond

we walked together

down the dirt road
to Sugarfoot Pond
holdin’ hands
not sayin’ nuthin
just walkin’
and lookin’ at the ground and such
my heart was beatin’ hard
i could feel it in my hand
at least i think it was my heart
it was hard tellin’ if it were mine or his
then a bird started makin’ some racket
and he said, hush up, you crazy bird!
and the bird, it stopped yappin’
just like that
i said, why you do that, Jimmy?
why you tell that bird to hush?
and he said
i was just countin’ your heartbeats, Emmie
and you know what?
i think they’s the same as mine!
i laughed at Jimmy
but he was real serious lookin’
and so then
 i started lookin’ real serious at him right back
and then that crazy Jimmy
he starts squawkin’ real loud
just like that bird
and so we squawked together
down the dirt road
not doin’ nuthin’
but squawkin’
all the way down
to Sugarfoot Pond.

  1. My Sugarfoot Pond is called Peace Valley Park and it's one of my favoritest places in Pennsylvania. I love walking the lake, holding hands, enjoying the warmth.
