Hangin' On

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee.
~Emily Dickinson

Relishing the dog days of summer.
Hot they may be, we are savoring the days of freedom and fun.

Hope your summer has been full of picnics, swimming and star gazing
with only a few itchy mosquito bites.

Trying not to think that in less than a month we'll be back to the books.
But for now, I think Longfellow says it best.

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


  1. Beautiful poems! I love the Summer but it has been incredibly hot here in the South! Our school starts on Aug 15th... less than two weeks left!

    Enjoy your last sweet days of Summer my friend, HUGS!

  2. I'm such a poetry groupie, and Longfellow is one of my very favorites. Hope you enjoy your remaining summer!

  3. I was wondering how you guys were doing over there. Oh yes. . . we are surely enjoying our summer!
