Summer of the Innocent
I walked today and went for miles
Cultivation that calls to be routine.
It is early morning as we circle the sun.
Roosters announce its rising and
Other creatures follow suit.
Cows amble to the field.
Housewives steep their pots of tea.
There is satisfaction in the day,
Even though it is just beginning.
Labor is plenty, pantries will soon be
Full to over flowing.
There will be no need for scrimping.
Earth is sharing what is
But what She gives,
She does so with consistent pleasure.
I greet the day with all the life and verve that
Is allowed one person. My future waits.
➤ If today is good, tomorrow will be better. That is the sense of perennial love. Earlene Grey
Happy summertime! skp
