Summer In The Country

 One shows me how to lie down in a field of clover.
Another how to slip my hand under her Sunday skirt.
Another how to kiss with a mouth full of blackberries.
Another how to catch fireflies in jar after dark.
Here is a stable with a single black mare And the proof of God's existence riding in a red nightgown.
Devil's child--or whatever she was? Having the nerve to ask me to go get her a whip.
