Frozen in Time

Which do you like best?

I.
Is it a bad thing to be frozen in time?
August sun--the hottest in history,
the ice cream melts upon my hands
as the kids around me scream in joy--
900 miles alone; surrounded by love;
cold air blows upon my shoulders and face.
A meeting place for friends,
from near and far -- the memories not forgotten--
is it a bad thing to be frozen in time?

II.
Is it a bad thing to be frozen in time?
August sun-- the hottest in Mid Western history;
faces, a beat red, lips white from smiles.
The ice cream melts upon my hands,
in a form of relief from training camp heat;
as the kids around me scream in joy--
900 miles alone, surrounded by love;
cold air blows upon my shoulder,
green with Packers love, pride and fanaticism.
A meeting place for friends,
from near and far -- the memories not forgotten--
is it a bad thing to be frozen in time?

  1. They're similar, but I prefer 2. because it's slightly longer.
