These Dog Days - Poem

Updated on February 3, 2015

These Dog Days are long and hot

Makes me wish to find a spot


To cool myself; maybe find a breeze

Under the shade of some giant trees


To lay back and rest a bit

Or grab a cold drink and sit


Pondering some cooler days,

Avoiding the sun’s blistering rays.

Feeling lazy in this heat


Cooling the bottoms of my feet

After dashing across the burning walk


It’s just too hot to even talk.


Watching the sun slide down the sky

While ice cream melts, despite how I try


To lick the cone quick and clean

As the gooey liquid runs in a stream


Down my hands and arms it stays,

Stuck like glue on these Dog Days

      Thank you Lee,

      Although we are enjoying spring weather at this time, it won't be long before those Dog Days will be upon us once again.
