Sweet Summer Songs by Peter Rimmer

Cicada sings,
A bright summer cadence,
The scented night,
Not long gone,
Inhabited by somnolent,
Cricket song,
In that poised space,
Between night and day,
Cool breath of morning,
Haunts the waking day,
Birdsong swells the sweet air,
Encouraging waking eyes,
To widen in smile.
