The Morning Swim

On this damp morning

I proudly began

the long swim

to the other land

Practicing for months

swimming each day

the water calm

as I make my way

My family laughed

saying I would rue this venture

it is too far

may make it to the center

Swimming slowly

the fish and birds cheering me on

now in the center

a little past dawn

Close to the finish

excitement in the air

heart is racing

there is a slight glare

Climbing out

shouting out in exhileration

the sun and wildlife join me

in a celebration

My family applauds

sitting in a boat

a picnic is waiting

time for an ice cream float
