A Summer Day
by
Bob Kimberly


Next
 

Long after the sun
Has climbed over the ridge,
And the morning chores are done,
The horses are grazing quietly
And the dogs are asleep
In a shady spot.
A hawk is making lazy circles
In an empty sky
As a gentle breeze nudges
The old weathervane,
And the farm relaxes
To enjoy the calm
Of a warm summer day.

I agree with Michael and Lori. Such a calm poem - as if all is well with the world.
