PIE IN THE SKY JULY

My, my!
The sun of the year burns so  high!
It is July…
The days are long
but getting shorter…
and a little later
we’ll find ourselves in darkest winter
with a low-slung, short-shining sun,
resting more, recounting lore,
singing a joyful song…
and wishing seeming endless night
would last less long.

But for now, let’s play
in the still-long, warm-lit day
and take more time to do
and less to say,
come what may…
do good work
and have good fun
until the summer’s passed away
and done.
