Hi there, Kids!
I recently mentioned that we were having an unseasonably cool June here in my neck of the woods, but let me tell ya . . .
July … is … HOT.
We’re in the midst of a week-long heat wave that’s accompanied by my favorite thing in the whole world (not!) – high humidity! 😉
(Ok, ok, I’ll stop whimpering.)
The theme for today’s post is “summer”. I’ve paired a vintage illustration with a sweet little summer poem. The poem brings back memories of summer nights and daylight savings time. Hope you enjoy.
Bed in Summer
by Robert Louis Stevenson
In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.
And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
