Summer by the Pond

By Albert Zhang, age 17, Georgia


Across the pond
A frog leaps from
The rusty, wooden dock

As the last icicle melts under
The humid breath of spring
And the last maple leaf turns vibrant red

The frog gently slices into
The crystal blue water, head first
The final droplet splashes on the soft brown dirt
And the trees blossom into fiery red
The start of summer
