Have you ever felt that the next season is moving in way too fast? That it feels like winter when it’s not even December? On this particular day, that’s exactly what I was experiencing. It was way too cold for a summer day and this was my protest!
The Wrong Season
It’s the wrong temperature out today.
the wrong sun is in the way.
The wind is blowing,
the air is cool, but it’s not winter,
I’m no fool.
It should be warm outside today,
it should be summer,
wouldn’t you say?
It’s the middle of August and the sun won’t shine!
Please pretty summer don’t let
Autumn come our way.
