Day One

Day One
Dr. James E. Martin
©July, 2013

Day one of vacation is done.
It passed ever so fast.
How did it so speedily into oblivion run?
It’s supposed to forever last.

We only started the summertime fun,
And now day one is already done.
A beautiful day in the gulf coast sun,
We’re now one day nearer home!

Time surely slips away,
Except when one is at work.
So what about this should we cautiously say?
Forget work and focus on the perk!
