Summer Poem – Late June Observations When a perfect summer morning With heat to calm your soul, And a cooling breeze that fans you, Begins to wain. And flees. Grey clouds loom adorning, The wind starts getting bold, The sky grows dark, hear the silent coo Of pigeons in the breeze. No time to sit there yawning, Get out your breakfast bowl, Start working, there is much to do, Peel carrots, shuck the peas. No sitting under the awning, Just go and feed the fowl, The cat has jumped onto the roof, A tasty bird he sees. Later on the sun is joining Chooks. The dog gives howl When clip clop goes the horse’s hoof, Harness jingles, merrily. So do not come a’moaning, Be like the wise old owl, When rainclouds come, be quite aloof, And dream of woods and seas. Copyright Evelyn J. Steward. June, 2014
