The Records of Every Summer

The Records of Every Summer
David J Walker

I thought the last cold day of May
Had come and gone 

50 feels like freezing when
100 was last Friday 

I thought I was the authentic gardener 
Who held each calendar day 
within an experienced heart

the halcyon mornings are a congenial neighbor
gracious and 

but there is nothing to do except 
	      	bundle one more time 

assuming June will come as planned
		we can swim in
the warm air again
I have greeted each summers coming 
      	with passion

hoping each will in turn 
      	 remember me by name

there is a library
		with every record of
		every summer 
		I have lived

It’s near a river running through a town
Whose name I don’t remember

	My childhood is stored there
	All contained in a 
	Single Summers day
