The Bike

Wheels turn quickly  
on each spoke 
making weeds get 
stuck and choke.  

Old bike works 
like new bike should 
Ride down streets 
and in the wood. 

Kids go fast 
Mom goes slow 
afraid a tire 
might just blow. 

Dad, he laughs 
at mommy’s fear 
But he won’t ride 
why, isn’t clear. 

We still can’t see 
why the bike 
is not the toy 
that father’s like.  

Pedal fast  
until you glide 
always try to 
enjoy your ride.

  1. You bring back memories for me of when my dad used to take us kids on bike rides — in the dark! A night time city is so different than in the day. Taking my own kids riding (in the day) was always a joy. Thanks for this fun poem.

      1. Haha! A few years ago my late husband and I went on a cruise. We were at port in Mexico. We went to rent scooters. By rent scooters I meant he drives, I ride. Well, long story short, I ended up in a ravine, cuts all over, luckily not having to pay anything for damages to the scooter and finally on the back of Bob’s having an enjoyable ride!
