Summer Time

The clouds hang close to the ground
this summer it is too cool to enjoy the water
have to dwell indoors to avoid the chill
finally by two, the sun breaks through
hurry out to play, eat dinner outdoors
stay until the sun goes down
sometime after nine 

but the evening gets cold again
the fire pit will have to wait another time
tried to stay up late but fell asleep
didn’t want another overcast
morning slept until ten 

dreaming about other summers 

when the days were long
hours stretched out ahead
begging to be filled with baseball games
and long hikes, swimming holes
meeting new friends and falling in love
yearning for school to begin again.
