Injun Summah

1 De Injun summah's comin',
2 De bees is all froo hummin',
3 De watah-mellon thumbin'
4 Has passed long time ago.
5 De ole clock in de kitchen
6 Is tickin' mos' bewitchin',
7 While Gabe is out unhitchin'
8 Just kase it looks like snow.

9 De lambs is runnin' over
10 De aftahmath ob clovah,
11 An' yondah comes de drovah;
12 I 'spec he' got a yahn
13 About de ole bell-weddah
14 Dat's wand'rin roun' de meddah
15 An' wants ter git togeddah
16 Wid de sheep up roun' de bahn.

17 Some days de sun is shinin',
18 Some days de win' is whinin',
19 An' den I'se after fin'in'
20 Big pippins on de groun';
21 De birds hab all stopped singin',
22 Wil' geese is soufward wingin',
23 Jes' look an' see 'em stringin'
24 Whar warmah weddah's foun'.

25 De yaller cat is nappin'
26 En layin' roun' an' gappin';
27 Bimeby he will be slappin'
28 Some tom-cat on de wall.
29 Dar's a mellah, yellah glory
30 Kase de yeah is ol' an' ho'ry,
31 An' a melancholy story
32 So't o' hangin' roun' us all.

    Very difficult to write in this style, so I applaud this poem.
