Ode to Summer

My hair was blonder,
the days were longer.

Excercising didn't feel like a chore.

Every window in the house was opened as far as it would go,
sometimes the breeze would knock things over
(but I never minded).

True, the cats wouldn't come near us,
but they could perch in the open window-
what could be better?

Two words:
flip flops.
Two more:
no socks.

& more:
farmer's market
sun tea
(my birthday)
fresh air
warm breeze
beach trips

le sigh.
Summer, I've got it bad for you.
I want to be at the beach getting a sunburn.


  1. oh my, I miss summer so much I could cry! :)

  2. Ahhh, lovely poem! It makes me long for summer! xxx
