Summer State of Mind

Cup ‘o sweet tea
Hint ‘o lemon
Splashed in sunbeam
To Time's glass
Ruffle of
Laughter from heaven
Runs its touch
Across the grass
Half-shut eyelids
Tilted God-ward
Where He spills
Time’s perfect blue
Without reservation
On a sky-wide avenue
Pulses In flowers
Or in bowers
Washed with rain
Happiness requires
But the moment
We are in
It is summer.
Who could ask for
Anything but
Perhaps this;
Let the hour
Bleed more slowly
Because of
