Skating Outside
Beverly Pacheco loved to skate on her neighbor’s pond, which has been dammed to make ice to sell since a century ago.

We’d put on our double mittens,
Put on two pair of socks,
And plastic bags to keep our feet
Warm and dry.
I loved to go
And skate for hours and hours,
Me and my sisters,
Skating outside.
 
We’d walk to the neighbors’ pond.
It was a swollen stream.
They dammed the stream for blocks of ice
In years gone by.
I loved to go
And skate for hours and hours,
Me and my sisters,
Skating outside.
