It doesn’t always live up to expectations –
frequently too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry
Wearing pretty cotton dresses and silly strappy sandals
does something magic for a girl’s morale and looks
Young beauty is enhanced by a light, natural tan –
with not too much sun, to avoid later wrinkles.
Warm summer nights are made for flirting –
under the stars romance starts to grow.
Longer days and shimmering nights make growing time
Fruits and grains swell rapidly towards maturity.
A quasi-ghazal for Miz Quickly about something or someone we love, without naming it.
I struggled with this, as is probably evident!
