The Dog Days of Summer Revisited

Updated on July 17, 2017



Dog Days of Summer,

The rising of Sirius,

much to encumber.


That Dog Star, its name,

Is given its share of fame.

As we all slumber.


July to August,

The time of a sultry heat.

Sweating's not discrete.


Summer time is here,

The days we all hold so dear.

Days off we can't beat.


Warmest days, such fun.

As the moon chases the sun.

Dog days, every one.

      I don't know why buy I feel that Will Smith's summertime should be playing when I read this. Summer time is a wonderful time and way to capture that with this poem.

      Loved this fun poem. And I loved your pics. Your front page image makes me think of the children's cartoon story about the friendship between a fox and a hound. These two were friends naturally until other's biases infected their minds and lives. Lovely yet sad movie.
