Country Summertime

 

Summertime in my rural world,

  Meanders lazily through

  Slipping into the taste of iced tea

And dancing through casual conversations at the town fair

 

  The streaming sun glistening off of fields of grass

  Oozing from the juice of freshly picked strawberries

  Clomping rhythmically on the horse’s hooves down a dirt road

 

Summer splashes with the beaver’s tail, slapping in the water

Buzzing with the bees on the sunflower path

  Whispering through the green laced branches

 

Beckoning all to enjoy the fleeting warmth

The multi-shaded beauty

Of summer in the country
