On summer morning in backyard breeze, my chair
calls out to me, as I hold my mug of coffee.
A bracing black liquid to start my day in fresh air
where I am serenaded by finches in tree.
The sun awakens slowly, a lemon hue
that throws a light across the book I view.
Imagine lounging all day long, and reading
to your heart’s content, with only birdsong for company.
Indulge yourself in a classic or perhaps a mystery.
How sweet that morning air, and a book that is intriguing.
