Out comes the paddling pool.

Out comes the paddling pool.

A Poem by Dawn

Out comes the paddling pool
into the garden, it goes.

The heat wave is on.
The hosepipe to fill it up.

And in the kids go,
laughing and joking
and having a grand
old time.

They also have a couple
of water soaker guns.
Running after each other
and their parents too
soaking them with each
and every trigger pulled.

Grandma is in the corner
sit out the way.
Making sure she does not
get soaking wet.
Chuckling away to herself.

Grandad is at the barbeque
and cooking up a storm with
Dad.
The smell is making
me so dam hungry.

My Mum is talking to a neighbour
across the dividing fence.
The sun is shining and no cloud
are forecasted for the rest of the
weekend ahead.
