Our Summers | McKenzie Richardson

We walked down streets we’d never seen

every turned corner another adventure.


We went through countless well-worn doors

always with a new surprise on the other side.


We rested upon emerald grass

and climbed up endless stairs.


We scaled a hill, a garden, a tower, a castle.

We tackled the world hand-in-hand.


I’m thankful for the summers we’ve had

and for those we have yet to share.
