By the lake.

 Took the kids to the lake, today,
 tempertures in the 30's,
 sky cloudless and blue.
 my sun tan oil, I took too.
 Don't want to look, like
 a lobster, it's not in fashion,
 looking pale , is also out,
 so have to go for a healthy tan,
 and leave you in no doubt.
 The water was murkey, but we
 did not care,as long as it was 
 warm, we were happy there.
 I did not swim too far out,
 I have to see the shore,
 feel the ground beneath my feet.
 Any deeper, and I feel faint,
 not the best way to be,
 stranded in the sea.
 The kids and I had a fun day out,
 a good time was had by all,
 only now a few hours later,
 I am starting to burn,
 the lobster look, is back in,
 at least untill the morn,
 when I hope the tan will come,
 and I am not so sore.
