“Again… Please, again!”

This original poem was written by Pok-O Intermediate camper Lucien, and read aloud by the author at this past weekend’s camp service.

15_wf5As we say ‘Farewell’,
to women and to men.

We think of our desires
and want to go again.

We want another try
to satisfy our needs
For good friends, good times,
good thoughts and good deeds.

We ask ourselves:
What am I here for?
For hiking, for swimming,
for the peaceful quiet on Long Pond shore.

15_wf6What the answer should be
you’ll find deep within.
It is to find love and happiness,
and to leave camp with a grin.

So when it is our turn
to say our ‘good-byes’,
just let out your feelings;
do not be shy.

Because when you return,
make sure you pay close attention,
to amazing things and amazing people
that leave you thinking “again… please, again!’
