“August Muse Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Today is Garden Blogger’s Muse Day, day to post a poem relating to gardening. Considering our recent weather, this old song came to mind.
SUMMER IN THE CITY
Hot time, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting burnt and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city.
All around people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a matchhead.
Thanks to Sweet Home and Garden Chicago for starting Garden Bloggers’ Muse Day. Be sure to stop by for other great poems.
