This midsummer found us in the USA with temperatures around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Despite the heatwave, we found ourselves to have a very traditional midsummer with all of our favorite foods and great celebrations with friends and then,......it was off to the pool for a cool splash. Here's a look at our Midsummer.
Now the high midsummer sun
Burns the dreaming hours away,
Kindles blossoms bright as flames,
Flashes light from leaf and spray.
Light is quivering on the moor,
Air is hot with honeyed smells,
Golden rivers burn and glide,
Shining brooks are singing spells.
Butterflies like flowers a-wing,
Tremble as they drink the light,
Golden pollen fills the sky,
Downy sees soar out of sight.
