Too Long

He lay too long
Lazing in summer sun
Watching children 
Play at the water's edge
In the warm sand.
He lay too long
Legs crossed
Reading a book
Under a shade tree
Too long sipping lemonade
Boaters left the lake
He lay too long
Beach chairs were put away
Leaves fell, grasses browned
Sand and water grew cold
He lay too long
He's long gone.

  1. He must have enjoyed the view! I would like to share a thermos of coffee with him and listen to his stories......we'd probably stay too long....
