the lake place

recipes handed down
in gramma’s hands
kept on index cards
in a box by the stove
blueberry memories
peach cobbler and
white fluffy cake
served with lemonade
watching ducklings
find their water way
where pontoon boat
moored grey dock
the lake place
dusty road down
general store comics
with grandpa’s
colorful story songs
for Madame Mado.
