Summertime (with apologies to George Gershwin)

It is SO HOT outside! I don’t want to go out for long, so I’ve been staying inside writing poetry and keeping cool. Today is supposed to be another scorcher, so I wrote a poem about the heat. So in case you forgot it’s summer, here’s another offering, sung to my favorite song from the opera Porgy and Bess.

Summertime (with apologies to George and Ira Gershwin)

Oh my Dog

it’s so hot and so hazy

Hard to walk

for a long-span of time.

.

Think I’ll stay

inside under the AC

And dream of when it’s once

again wintertime!
