Enigma Weekend Edition: Poetry by Natalie Zook

"Summer"
by Natalie Zook

A simpler time,
without the stress of
                tests
                homework
                drama
                GPA
                quizzes
a time when
it was warm,
and the sun shone
brightly on the green grass,
and the soft sand
tickled my bare feet
a time when
crickets chirped under the blanket
of the summer night
and the brilliant moon
reflected off of the
ocean waves
I sit in my classroom prison,
waiting with anticipation
                for summer
to brighten my life
                once again.
