Summer’s Heat and a Tumble

Summer’s heat and a tumble –

That’s all it took.

Then a drive to emerge

Where the folks were kind

And I was told I’d be fine.

Oh, the body’d be sore

With bruises and scrapes,

But the X-rays dismissed

Any surgery or brace.

With a tensor on my knee

And instructions for care,

They sent me home

To get over this scare.

 

Summer’s heat and a tumble –

That’s all it took

To change the course of events

That had already been booked.

With ice packs on my knees

And a cane by my side,

I’m beginning to realize

That healing is going

To take some time.
