Southern Summer Season

Poem by: Three Shirts Too Many

Summary

A little poem about the America I grew up in, and my favorite season. This is my first venture into poetry, and I can only hope it's up to snuff!

The summer cicadas,

the yellow sun,

the green Spanish moss,

the corrugated tin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And so it has come again,

with it have come

all the things I love,

and shamelessly frolic in.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The summer lemonade,

the 'gator huntin',

the barbeque out on the porch,

the slow boat trips.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With the end of may,

the sweet new dawn comes,

and the water curls off

the swamp, coming alive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The summer laughs,

the sun dresses,

the sleeveless shirts,

the loud radios and fans.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With skinny arms,

and scarred palms

and a wandering mind

and an old Jeep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The summer love,

the warm, close-eyed kisses,

the mosquitoes,

and the joy.
