Inspired by our first taste of this summer's corn this evening, your prompt shall be: in the corn field.
Today was a day of rest, and the rest was good.
We wandered down the row of corn,
Completely lost and unconcerned;
For the sun was high in the sky
And there were lessons to be learned.
Like how to interlace fingers
With the prettiest girl in school:
Don't grip too tightly, nor loosely,
Don't sweat, make sure to play it cool.
And how to talk about nothing
And everything at the same time
Without tripping over your tongue
Or transforming into a mime.
But all too soon the sun fell down,
Forcing us to find our way back,
Slightly wiser and more in love,To the rest of our high school pack.
