Warmth and humidity,

gentle and placid,

like the bovines resting in fields.

Grasshoppers in long grass,

a fly whizzing by,

a breeze through leaves.

Warblers in woods,

yellow hammers in hedges,

the sounds of summer.

Warm earth and

ripening grasses

scent the air.

Swallows skimming fields.

Wind making water of wheat -

a lake of green and gold.
