Behind a Blue Ball Cap

Across the room he sat With his face hidded  Behind his blue ball cap.  Across the brim of his hat  In bold letters dressed in black  Were the words, "U.S. Veteran" He held a glass of whiskey  In his old, rough, looking hands. His hands where some what shakey, And he sat a little slouched.  But his air was of honor, and self-respect.  Reminding all who saw him  That this mann was a proud American.  In the background of the pub  The national anthem played  And if you looked close enough  You could see a hand above his heart.  By Evelyn Creon 

22 Years Today

On this very day A girl was born, With big eyes, And light brown hair. She is my best friend. Today's her birthday she turns twentry-two. I'm so glad to have her Here with me. Through good and bad, And tear stained eyes. From thousands of miles And terrible late nights. From hiking trails With amazing views, To broken hearts, And musical tunes. Delirious with laughter, Oh, what a sight. Ocean beaches, Picture pit stops, Tailegate parties, To broken down trucks. That girl and I've been Through so much. When the world is dark She lifts me up. She is the best I love her so much. I'm so glad to have her In my life. Happy birthday To my best friend.  By Evelyn  Creon 

Summer Kitchen Misery

There was a hot kitchen, In a little town, In the mid summer, Where heat empowered all. It dragged its employees Through ditches full of sweat, While they tried to labor In hot air with food and prep. Next to ovens and stoves That were deathly hot. They savored every step When in the ice chest. Cold water they would gulp Refreshing their dry throats. While trying their best To stay hydrated. When summer seemed to cease Happiness filled them all, Because cool weather Was a sign for fall. By Evelyn Creon


 "Shhhh-tik-tik-tik, Shhhh-tik-tik-tik."  The sprinkler seemed to say On repeat all day. Watering to keep grass green In the summer heat,  "Shhhh-tik-tik-tik, Shhhh-tik-tik-tik." A place for children To get wet and clean,  "Shhhh-tik-tik-tik, Shhhh-tik-tik-tik." The cool breeze it gives When wind and water collide, "Shhhh-tik-tik-tik, Shhhh-tik-tik-tik." On a farm in the evening When colors fill the sky, "Shhhh-tik-tik-tik, Shhhh-tik-tik-tik." "Shhhh-tik-tik-tik, Shhhh-tik-tik-tik." The sprinkler seemed to say On repeat all day. By Evelyn Creon
