Summer Wind

Rating: 2.8
It is a sultry day; the sun has drank
The dew that lay upon the morning grass,
There is no rustling in the lofty elm
That canopies my dwelling, and its shade
Scarce cools me. All is silent, save the faint
And interrupted murmur of the bee,
Settling on the sick flowers, and then again
Instantly on the wing. The plants around
Feel the too potent fervors; the tall maize
Rolls up its long green leaves; the clover droops
Its tender foliage, and declines its blooms.

Did Bryant really make the grammar mistake in the very first line, or did someone from PH type it incorrectly into their poem bank when they entered it? Correct would be the sun has DRUNK (not DRANK) the dew. This poem is better than the 5.5 rating given by the 31 voters so far.

This is the loveliest piece I have read in a long time. Reads easy, paints its scene simply, transmits its joy without overdone wordage. And oh how I welcome that breeze on a hot summer day.
