Sultry Summer

Heating begins with the rising of the sun
Greeting the tips of the tallest trees
Beating down to dry laundry on the line
Meeting high temps with climbing degrees

Wonder of your day at the beach
Under the protection of suntan lotion
Blunder not learning of the weather approaching
Thunder on its way coming in off the ocean
