Oh sweltering is summer's day of bliss,
So hot the desert's kiss from sun above.
And sweat that drops cause me to reminisce -
the past, a summer's day a child would love.
A playtime in a grassy field of green
and from a hose the water cool and free;
oh such a joy is this midsummer's scene,
the children's laughter flows in joyful spree.
I wish that day would greet me just once more,
The joy of feeling free on summer's day.
Instead I am confined to cool indoors,
Upon my laptop typing verse to sway.
Midsummer's Day you make me such a fool -
I fear your heat will be forever cruel.
