Ashfield Lake

off to camp tomorrow
an art camp with grownups
remembering ashfield lake
muggy hot and wildly humid
bed rolls hitched with safety pins

list of duties posted on the fridge
Girl Scout songs and s'mores
canoe classes, fearful of water
hanging out at the store
ogling tough guys and a jukebox

eleven, skinny, and shy
hopelessly unaware of the big life
she would soon fall into
far away from the maple covered hills
and their seductive magic
