Camden, Maine:

At the Midway Point

Source: spoken personal story


About two weeks ago
It snowed a good amount
I’m sledding with my mom
Over at Mount Battie
 
On the way up
No one can drive
We just take the sleds up by walking
 
So as you know of course
We had to bring along
Both our dogs Nellie and Harley
 
It usually takes a while
To get up to the top
Because we get where it’s pretty steep
 
And although it’s hard to walk
Through all the snow and ice
It’s nice to talk to my mom
And have a chat
 
Then we reach a point
Where we pick up great speed
We both prepare the sleds
So nothing slows us down
 
Chorus:
So we go down with great speed
Because the road is pretty steep
Especially at the midway point
 
And we have both dogs chasing us
Behind us like rabid squirrels.
it’s great to feel a cool breeze
Through my hair
 
We finally slow to a stop
And Harley catches up
We decide we should probably rest
If not he’d die
 
So we go down with great speed
Because the road is pretty steep
Especially at the midway point
