A Lazy Afternoon.


Swing, swing,
Dozing in the hammock,
Above me sky ablue,
Sweet summer Sunday,
Too long overdue.

Swing, swing,
Family round the table,
Remains of barbeque,
A bottle almost empty
Of some local witches’ brew.

Swing, swing,
Listening to the crickets,
Nothing much to do,
Paradise around me,
Now all I need is you.
Swing, swing,

    a lovely suggestive poem. Love the reference to paradise mingling with the sense that someone else should be there to make it so. Thank you! (Report) Reply
