Posting this one for my good pal, Diana Preston. She’s had a rough go for a bit, and says my silly poems and stories helped her some along the way, and I’m glad for that. I’ve posted this one many times, but it’s one of my favorites–kind of a “Welcome Summer” thang–so here it is again. It’s a perfect way to welcome an other summer. You can even listen to yours truly recite it by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Marbles In My Pocket ~ The Official Blog of Charles L. Mashburn ~ Poems, Short Stories, and random thoughts from the author of "Be Still... and know that I am God"

I know every guy reading this–well almost every guy–was once this 6-9 year-old boy overlooking the world from the high diving board at the town pool. I can promise you, I did not write this poem using second-hand information. I post it again today for all my high school chums here at the reunion. Enjoy!
