This is a summer challenge hosted by Parajunkee. It runs through the month of June and has weekly link-ups.

Write a Good Summer Poem

I wrote this poem in 2009, the summer I worked at an exotics ranch.

 

Summer

The hot sun beats down on the land

The dry grass crackles with jumping grasshoppers

The gentle breeze whispers through the trees

The animals frolic in the fields

The rows are long, the crops ripe

The water is always cool and welcome

The cold iced tea slides down like sweet brandy

The days are long and hard on the back

The evenings are flirtatious at the dancehall

The nights are soothing with the soft words of a lover

The storm nights reign over it all,

Through the heated days and heated nights of Summer.
