behind a haphazard structure
about to cripple itself in the wind
two adorable little girls stood
each a pitcher in their hand
a picture perfect moment
of sour sweet times past
pocket money making scheme
in time memorial
from my own memory flashed
Norman Rockwell would be
honored to immortalize
such sweet innocent event
if I had not been late for my appointment
I would have stopped and
purchased a cup from those
giggling lasses
not so much because I love lemonade
but because their genius intent
was just as tender as it was well meant..............

A true story. I saw them just today at the corner of 23rd and Liberty.
