Ode to Arizona on a Hot Summer's Day

Ode to Arizona on a Hot Summer's Day
Written by Adam M. Snow

Oh sweltering is summer's day of bliss,
So hot the desert's kiss from sun above.
And sweat that drops cause me to reminisce -
the past, a summer's day a child would love.

A playtime in a grassy field of green
and from a hose the water cool and free;
oh such a joy is this midsummer's scene,
the children's laughter flows in joyful spree.

I wish that day would greet me just once more,
The joy of feeling free on summer's day.
Instead I am confined to cool indoors,
Upon my laptop typing verse to sway.

Midsummer's Day you make me such a fool -
I fear your heat will be forever cruel.
