Summer In My Mind

Summer in my mind
By Barbara Carleton

The heady smell of sedge grass baked by summer sun,
Mud oozing between my toes where the creek bed runs;
Napping in the shade of that big elm by the barn,
Watermelon right off the vine, from the field, still warm.
No matter where I go, just closing my eyes I find
That I am not so far from home; and it's still summer in my mind.
Author's Notes:
I hope I never outgrow summers.

This is yummy Barbara.  I'll be dead if I ever outgrow summer. It's my favorite season of all!
