by Barbara Fulchino
Five lovely, grinning girls
An accessory if you will
A summer thrill.
Ready, get set and go
Up Broadway, down Cottage Street
In and out and round about.
The world wide open,
No holds barred.
Five young ladies
Ginger, Peggy, Bunny
Blondie and Honey
Out for a ride
Best of friends, forever
Soon to be some man’s bride.
I am fine
by Barbara Fulchino
I am fine Let me be! I am fine Can’t you see?
I am fine Life was full.
I am fine Heart, and soul. I am fine It’s in God’s hands. I am fine At His command. I am fine With face of crease. I am fine Though my limbs cease. I am fine You will be too. I am fine
As I say adieu.

I’ve been traveling to Acadia National Park for the last 30 years and know it well. It’s one of those places that gets into your blood.
