THE RHYTHM OF MY STREET
By Janice M. Yuwiler
One bus rumbling down the street.
Two boys boogying to the beat.
Three dogs search for something to eat.
Four friends share a single seat.
Five babies playing with their feet.
Six windows hold a flapping sheet.
Seven teens share a birthday treat.
Eight cats rub against those they meet.
Nine neighbors gather in the heat.
Ten trees shade the hot concrete.
I love the rhythm of our street.
