SUMMER

            SUMMER

            Stride out
Summer is outdoors
Is no other place
No yearning look out a window will thrill 
        the frame
The nest spills its load to pure nature
And flaps about    by heat stricken
            Stride out
Summer is awakening
Is not for old words croaking
The young in heart only half-sense
      are blithely ignorant
They grow with the verdant crowds
And flounder happily about
            Stride out
Summer is for doing
Is a wild runabout
Let them shrink in awareness those who frown
Summer is nature laughing and jolly
Let them die those who only sleep and watch

    Great write! But I spend more time running wildly about in the other seasons. The heat saps me.
