Afternoon Delight

A glass of lemonade 
on a hot day 
Delights the palate 
and keeps one cool 
in the summer heat 
The day is the hottest of the year 
So I will not travel 
Rather relax with the newspaper
and the television 
Also get in somewriitng 
Poetry can bring relief on a bad day 
and touch the innermost part
of one's soul 
Let us remain open 
to the poet's art 
For he or she 
can influence the heart

I agree that a poet can change the mood of any heart with just the right words, a glass of lemonade is good too. Love your poetry, hope all is well,
