August Muse Day

“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.


Thermometer II (redu)




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.

      Yes, Janet, that song certainly brings me back to my salad days.

    We are not in the city, but we are also hot! 103 was the highest here. Such heat in a city is ten times worse. We need some rain (I can’t believe I said that)!

      Tatyana, seems like everyone is getting the weather they don’t want. Too much rain or not enough. Too cold or too hot. This has been a strange summer.
