Summer Rispetto

Summer Rispetto

In blazing glory Summer ascends her throne,

crowned by Mother Nature with titian blue sky.

Sunshine sparkles on waterfalls like rhinestone;

and robin redbreasts teach baby chicks to fly.

Fields aglow with mantles of joyful jonquils, 

and brooks blissfully babble through green foothills.

Balmy zephyrs drift dreamily murmuring,

“How sweet … but soon Summer will be sweltering!”

Oh, is that last line ever true, Pandita! When waxing eloquent on summer's pleasures, we so often forget the sweltering, lifeless, curtain of humidity which descends (in August where I am, in Chicago). … Congrats on your well-deserved win. Best wishes, Gershon

The swelter arrived here a month ago. The heat index here yesterday was 120F. Such a lovely poem Pandita. You have poetically captured the true essence of summer:) Good luck sweetie. I have read some marvelous rispettos. Glad I'm not judging this one.
