By the Periwinkle Pool

Landry Harlan

Rainbow popsicles,
by the periwinkle pool,
under the sapphire sky,
what a sweet by and by.

To be a bee sipping on honey,
to let the breeze sneeze away all worry,
of Brexits and your Lexus
of Thunder trades and the kid's grades
of a President Trump and that weird lump...

Maybe it's a summertime silliness,
maybe it's the musings of a fool,
but it really ain't so bad,
when you got a popsicle in your hand,
by the periwinkle pool.
