Bowling on Turtle Hill

by Y. M. Roger

Bowling poem Contest Winner 

We set ten make-shift pins in place
There at the base of Turtle Hill –
Not really pins but garbage cans,
Nothing inside: no pain, no spill…
The five of us were set on top
And held the sledding disk for Jill –
She donned her helmet and shin guards,
Crouched tight like a tornado drill…
'Cuz Jill, she was the ball, you see,
O’er ice and snow she flew downhill –
Took out six cans: she stood, we cheered!
Next up: the spare belongs to Bill...
