summer came 
in her robe of light
and sprinkled the earth
with flowers.

we've found ourselves
in a deserted city,
with most people headed 
to their summer cottages 
for midsummer.
I think we'll pack the car
with picnic stuff
& take a little road trip.
I'm yearning to see 
the sparkling sea
& pick (at least) those seven flowers
to slip under the pillow.

it's warm,
nature's bursting at its seams,
and in summer, 
the song sings itself,
as Mr William Carlos Williams says. 

Happy Midsummer!
