Cherry Popsicle

it's the cherry popsicle feeling that you get
in early June convinces you
really, there's no homework left to do

and you stand entranced in the backyard
as if at the entrance to Christmas
now we're drifting in the summer sea

of days
and wondering will it always be this way
your whole life long

that time stands still.
and you're on the earth the same time as the zinnias
and just as colorful.
