Summer Break


The summer solstice
My strength does sap, steal, and slay.
So slain, I sojourn.

Aschewing scholarship
Stenuous schedules forsaken
Still slumbering late.

Purposefully reading
Inane mystery novels by the score
With insipid plots.

Putting off studying
Online courses that so improve
Curriculum Vitaes.

Instead weeding beds
Then planting, English ivy and liriope
My garden to enhance.
