A Rainbow In The Dark

welcome longest day of the year
remember when we swam in naked in your stream?
Welcome shortest day of the year
on the other side of the hemisphere
how I wish we could trade
your lovely winter
for this summer
and early dark nights
by the firelight
as wood crackles deep
in earths comforting sleep
in our half of the land
she is too much awake
and cannot slumber peacefully
for heavens sake
Give us marshmallows for watermellon
and hot cocoa for iced tea
give us an excuse to be lazy
beneath leafless trees

new question to ask others: Are you a marshmallow or a water mellon? While I like an occasional water mellon, I think I am definitely marshmallow.
