A Summer's Dream

A Summer Dream

I've waited with wistful patience
For summer's warmth and sun and rain
I've searched the heavens for the showers
But clouds just promise rain in vain

If I were out in prairie woodland
Beyond  spongy marshland gates
I'd be listening to the frog songs
Croaking love songs to their mates.

But a city confines nature
To these busy numbered streets
It sets limits on our pleasures
And it rations all our treats.

 I still recall all those spring sounds
That brought pleasures long ago
 So I adjust my expectations
To the delights I now know.

It's been a long cold dreary winter
And we're due for summer's glee.
I've got most of my wishes granted
Now I'm happy and care free!
