The Coming of Summer

By Rachel Seidner

 

The yawn of Spring creeps through the silken sky,

And Summer’s call is Nature’s violin;

Pied pipers draw the curtains from the eye –

The sun and clouds and golden light within.

So dark and thick the blanket down below

That tired bodies hesitate to rouse,

Till sun comes out and wind begins to blow,

And amber waves weave pictures through the boughs.

Light seeping through the windows of the room,

As golden rays erupt between the clouds;

The silken threads weave gold upon the loom,

Soft cloth replaces Spring’s forsaken shrouds.

And following the thread by which it came,

Spring’s flowers fray in wake of Summer’s flame.

 

Free; 6:30pm Monday, April 2, High School Teachers and their Students reading at Robert E. Lee High School auditorium, 1400 Jackson Keller, (210) 442-0300, neisd.net/lee. To see a calendar of all National Poetry Month events in San Antonio, go to npmsa2012.com.
