In the morning we all rode,
Mama’s truck along the road.
Happily, it wasn’t far,
to Charleston’s posh peninsula.
Mama found a place to park it,
luckily, right by the market.
We cruised the stalls of cheap mementoes,
bags of grits and hot pimentos.
Sweetgrass baskets, table mats
and Jim tried on a lot of hats.
We took a carriage ride, explored,
the grand old houses south of Broad,
admired the churches and their spires.
This carriage could use softer tires
I worry we might break some bones
Bouncing on these cobblestones.
Turned the corner then to show
the famous pretty rainbow row.
We toured the Battery and saw,
Fort Sumter where they had a war.
Watched the pelicans in motion
Fishing the Atlantic ocean.
