COTTAGE END

The last hurrah.  Hot dogs

hamburgers lettuce and tomatoes.

One more watermelon and a

lobster sandwich. Sandy towels.

Radios too loud. Crying kids.

Chairs folded and stored away.

Sun screen, hats and

umbrellas pushed into a closet.

Swimsuits to the bottom drawer.

Restaurants to half staff.  Beach

balls released to the wind.

Swimming songs lose the love.

Pack the car.  Remember the

toothbrush and toaster.  Empty

the refrigerator. Leave sandals.

Water turned off.  Lock windows

and doors; check three times.

Secure storm windows. Forget

the lawn.  Lock the shed.  Gas up.

Heavy traffic.  Unpack.

Back to work.
