Camping

Sweatshirts
Folding chairs
Food packed tightly against bears

Sticky hands
Cocoa stains
Campfire songs' familiar refrains

Sleeping bags
Flapping tent
A night with family well-spent

Sweet dreams
Cool breeze
Leaves rustling in the trees

Dawn breaks
Morning chill
Awakened gently by songbird's trill

Camping
