Poet or not, this calls for a poem

The day was clear.
To sled on the hill.

They gathered gear
Never mind the chill.

Jake wasn’t sure
Uncle Brad would save

On this adventure
Ryan was brave.

Jacob did take a turn
With mom patiently helping

But he begged not to return
He really liked swinging.

J had sledded before
And it was a blast

He likes to soar;
The sleds go so fast.

Double the pleasure
Double the fun
With a double good
Double good, double good mum.

Some sledded head first
And when they went down
Sometimes they reversed
And some went upside down.

It was worth a try
Even when the train failed

There was not a cry
Though it fully derailed.

After the thrill
It wasn’t that bad

Climbing the hill
With a fun loving dad.

I sledded and loved it!
But not very much. . .
I mostly watched, I admit
Cause I didn’t want a crutch.

Hot chocolate in a mug,
Warms down to the toes

And makes us feel snug.
That’s how our story goes.

That was a great poem Brenda, but the sweet photo of them on the steps was even better. Loved the day of sledding, cocoa, and pajamas! Family memories!
