Summer Cooking

Sizzling sausages spit at the sun Yes, the summertide season’s begun. Salads,barbecued fish And a charred veggie dish, Summer cooking, what feasting,what fun! Roasted pineapple next for my sweet, Then bananas and cream, what a treat! Melting marshmallows too With a chocolate fondue Summer cooking is just up my street! I’m beginning to rue my excess. I have over-indulged,I confess. Summer cooking is fine But one must draw the line Or put up with digestive distress! 2019 Poetry Marathon Mile 24 Poetry Contest -sponsored by Mark Toney

Oh, yummy! Time to get the grille out, haha! (Just cleaned the deck of snow today) This is wonderful, Wendy, and got my craving for charcoal grilling going ... but still snowing here, lol! Wonderful write, my friend - congrats on your placement! :-) <3
