WriteOut CLmooc Fountain

Maple trees surround the lawn

within the park

around the pool;

cool waters filled with kids

teens and youngsters

in the pool;

diving, splashing,

sunning, running


the whistle screams,


the lifeguard reminds

busy in the pool;

toddlers, wee ones,

and their moms

in the wading pool:

wading, splashing

laughing, falling

cool in the pool

falling splashes

from the fountain

squirting in the pool;

toddlers squeal

rush away

fun in the pool.
