On our recent Fall Voyage, many of us were plagued by allergy symptoms. The hike around this lake was the very worst spot. So many were miserable (including me) that I went and found this silly poem that I wrote a couple of years ago about my allergy symptoms at this time of year. I wanted to share this with the crew to show that almost anything can be a writing topic - even allergies.

by Jill Fisch

My eyes are puffy,
My nose is stuffy,

I sneeze and sneeze and sneeze.

Oh, just what is a girl to do
But sit around and say achoo.

The weeds, the seeds,
They do not care about my needs.

They drift around on a gentle breeze,
Unaware that they make me wheeze.

These weeds of summer can tease and tease
And often bring me to my knees.

While I just wait, oh please, oh please,
For the coming of Fall and the next hard freeze.
