SUMMER MOOD-SWINGS (silly poem #53)


Joyous, blissful, carefree hours
Gentle breezes, quiet showers
Rivers tiding
Trout abiding
Fragrant flowers
Bicycle riding.
Followed by:
Steaming, burning, blazing heat
Weather that arrives replete
With snakes and mites
And insect bites
Athlete’s feet
And cabbage blight
Waves that riffle rubber boat
While you indolently float
Upon a lake
And then sun bake
Upon the shore
‘Til every pore
Is welded, roasted, basted, braised,
Red with blisters fully raised
And very sore
For days and days.
