Gulch Jumpers

We use to jump through puddles 
In the springtime 
In the rain.
We laughed and then got yelled at 
When our mothers saw 
Our soaking shoes.
We spent our teenaged summers
Jumping gullies 
Falling short. 
We laughed and we got yell at
For our dirty 
Our chasm grew much wider 
When the leaves 
Began to fall. 
We laughed a little less and yet 
The yelling 
Had been stilled. 
Now wintertime approaches 
And our gully 
Is a gulch. 
And I don’t have the energy 
To jump
To laugh
To yell
To cry.
