A Cinquain* About a Favorite Toy - Scooter

Scooter on the left of vehicle.

Clunky, rusty
Slowly gallumps down hill
My dearest, sweetest riding toy
A Joy

My children had scooters. Actually, the process was more like this: Playskool rider, tricycle, bigwheel, bicycle with training wheels, bicycle, scooter, skateboard, car. Oh, the process of growing up. I never had a scooter, but I saw how much my kids treasured it.  Maybe one day, when I'm old,
I'll be gallumping on my scooter.   Sort of like the lady below. 

She seems to be styling.

* A Cinquain is composed of 5 lines, 22 syllables in a 2-4-6-8-2 syllable pattern.  A Cinquain describes something or tells a story.
