Where I’m From

By Andrew W.

I’m from cool, crisp air,

Rainy days,

And soft 100% cotton sweaters.

I’m from bell chimes,

The jubilant quacking of ducks as they drift down streams,

And I’m from blue raspberry flavored Icees.

I’m from the smell of Walmart,

I’m from thunderstorms,

And grass-stained socks.

I’m from coyotes,

I’m from jet lagged afternoons.

I’m from screeching cicadas,

Metal drinking fountains.

 

I’m from Barney The Dinosaur,

Damp wood chips,

I’m from “Hey diddle diddle”

And I’m from 13-hour plane rides.
