A Sunday Climb

A Sunday Climb


I can do it

let me try

I’m a big girl now

It’s not that high.


I don’t need a boost

I can climb

Stand back and watch

I’ll be fine.


I’ve almost got it

I’m almost there

Just pull myself up

Ah, smell that air!


The world looks different

Upon my new perch

Where’s Mommy and Daddy?

Sister should have gone first.


She’s older and bigger

No doubt she’s more brave

I she her now, giggling

And she’s starting to wave.


Why do you look so small

Did you shrink sister dear?

Get off that swing

And get over here!


I think I’ve had enough

Seen what I wanted to see

Now Daddy if you don’t mind

Get me out of this stinkin’ tree!

      Gypsy, I'm afraid of heights too! I'm really surprised I ever got up in trees when I was little!

      Thanks for the votes!

      Voted up and funny. Love that pic. I remember myself and my tree climbing problems. I have a fear of heights but when I was little I still tried to get into trees. Problem was I had to be lifted out. lol
