Mona says we should be "letting go" today but I can't seem to, Mona! My post is a fun rhyming verse about my difficulty in letting go of summer! This just came out as is in this order, spilling out as I am wont to do as per the title of this blog!
I still hang on, I can't let go
as summer's end is here, I know
today, I bought some sleeveless tops
the sales are good now at the shops
white pants and skirts still beckon me
with tanned skin, they look good, you see!
my sandals, such scuffed and worn out shoes
to toss them would give me the blues
the weather says UV is high
this sunny day I can't pass by
of vitamin D, I need my dose
so I will keep the summer close
on patio I keep it there
I sit on Adirondack chair
and read my book and soak up rays
I can't give up my summer days!
clouds pass by and it gets cool
and I must look like such a fool
after dinner, there is still light
although at 7:00, it's not that bright
in shorts divine I'm writing this
but it's not exactly summer bliss
tonight, it's going down to 5
dressed in heavy flannel nightie
I'll defy fall, oh, cripes almighty!
just close some windows and the door
add some blankets, two or more --
what's that? a goose bump on my skin?
excuse me now, I must go in!
(If you've never seen pictures of the summer bedroom, check the link and you will understand why I am so reluctant to give it up! It's just the coolest!)
