Summer’s Night — A Poem




“Summer Night” — C.Birde, 7/16


Long has Orion

slipped below the horizon.

The dog stars run loose

over the vast dark sky.

Crickets strum

barbed legs in song.

And I lie awake,


the heat-washed nights

of Summer.

— C.Birde, 7/16

  1. Oh, thank you 🙂 This came to me recently, when I gave our dog her evening walk. Some of the finest parts of Summer occur once the sun has set. Though it is quite steamy recently, I know I will miss the crickets’ song when Winter returns with Orion.
