Burnt Bayou Bridge

There's a place down south
Down some old dirt roads
Winding woody paths
To a boy's young mind
Arkansas in June

Burnt Bayou Bridge
I remember
Wooden plank seats
Old friends of mine

Cans of worms
Long canepoles
And rootbeer

    Seeing this one, I realize you must have entered the June contest with it and WON. I really enjoyed the way this form took you to the final word June and that fine childhood memory it evokes. Congrats on this well written poem.
