Elongated Day



Frank asked us to write some couplets for d’Verse today. Since this is the first day of summer in our hemisphere, he suggested that we write about the Solstice. This is my summer couplet.

Summer came by with elongated day
Sweating and steaming I came out to play

Sunrays unrelenting, I went inside
In air-conditioned comfort I’ll reside

Exaggerated day will come and go
I’m looking forward to next winter’s snow

Until then it’s iced tea and shady trees
On these long hot days let me feel the breeze
