There are lots of sensory delights this time of year
An icy cold beer after mowing the lawn.
Strawberry shortcake, not that manufactured spongy stuff, but real shortcake,
More like a Cat Head Biscuit, smothered with lots of real whipped cream.
But for my money, there’s little better than a perfectly ripe peach,
Eaten over the kitchen sink while looking out at the birds in the backyard,
Juices dripping down my chin, my wrist, my arm.
That is summer to me, summed up quite nicely,
And as my grandma always said,
I could eat them ‘til I founder.
Happy First Day of Summer!
What are your favorite joys of Summer?
