Cucumbers and Onions

Sliced in vinegar
with a tablespoon of sugar;
fare on the farm
when summer sun was shining
on flower bed and garden.

The chores
more than a minor diversion
from swimming in the millpond,
walking the dusty lane
from  mailbox to mudroom.

Making toeprint maps
to quick escapes.  Waiting
for tomatoes to ripen
just in time for the 4th of July
when even Mother Nature
was in the mood for celebration.
