The Water Slide

My third grade daughter’s embodied writing. : )

I shiver as I wait for the lifeguard to say go.

He says, “Go!”

So I look into the slide at the rushing water.

The water is fast like a happy dolphin.

I step in.


I gag as I race to the bottom. I wish I had not gone.

When I finish, I am relieved.

I will not go again. I felt like a monkey getting strangled.

I will conquer you.
