Nectar of the Gods!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Once upon a summer's day quite sunny,
I made a buy worthy of the money!
Past her rushing, as we too often are,
I glimpsed her stand, she the attending star!
A little girl sat there, as patient as
A mountain, and watched a hurried world pass.
She, the vendor of lemonade that day,
Waited as much of the day passed away.
Like the nectar of the gods, at a dime
A cup, one would think stopping worth the time.
I doubt that thirty cents lay in the can,
Since the morning when this bargain began!
A hundred times, I bet, the squirrel shook
Its tail, and maybe half of some long book
Might have been read by some brainy scholar,
When she counted one fifth of a dollar.
The robin might have hopped from end to end
Of town, but still, not one quarter to spend!
By that time, the young day was growing old,
Soon to become a Lady clothed in gold.
I came back for a cup, and paid her five
Dollars, for all her patience and her drive!
The price was small to make the day worthwhile,
Blessed with her waving, and her precious smile!
