Summer

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Art – Sir George Clausen (1852-1944), Summer Night

I don’t want the summer to end

I don’t want the summer to end
That is why I try to suspend
My thoughts of winters and grey
Garnering drops of snow and dismay.

I don’t want the summer to end
That is why I am hand in hand
With clouds and planets blue,
Roses and treasures that have no clue
Of corrupt winds and misty reign
In the apocalypse of rain.

I don’t want the summer to end…

Engleza de joi / Scorcher

Every Thursday comes with a new word. And lately with waves of heat and nights petrified in silent shades.

It is a real scorcher today!

A scorcher = a very hot day.

I like everything about the summer: the beginning of summer, the midsummer days and the dog days.

dog days = the hottest days of the summer.

Enjoy the dog days!
