Quadrille Monday (second submission)

I am hosting the Quadrille prompt for today at dVerse.  A poem of exactly 44 words, not counting the title using the word “skip”.  Come join us!  Short poems won’t take long to read.  Have some fun and don’t skip this opportunity for fun.  This is my second submission for this prompt.   https://dversepoets.com/2016/05/02/quadrille-8/

Perfect Stone
Stevie Stevenson – cutest guy in first grade.
Class trip, picnic by the pond.
He skipped stones across the pond.
He picked up the perfect stone for me.
Snuck into my pocket, kept it.
Looking at it made my heart
Skip a beat all summer.

    Even in first grade it meant something to have a cute boy pay attention to you…so sweet.

    oh smiling I am! That first boyfriend….and the innocence of watching him skip stones….and then the stone in the pocket making your heart skip a beat. LOVE it! 🙂 The innocence of puppy love 🙂 That was the terminology in my day.
