by Richard L. Provencher

of the hill meant
a lot to a ten-year-old,
to shove the others
back as they approached
and holding your own as they
attacked from all directions.

There goes Lee pushed aside
then Ricky and now
I am in peril as Kenny,
my best bud, grabs an arm
and swings me flying
to the bottom - -

time for me to taste
the prize of a fallen King.

Richard enjoys writing poems; many of which have been published in Print and Online. He and his wife, Esther are also co-authors of stories and a print novel. They are "born again" Christians and very busy in their church, Abundant Life Victory International, in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia.
