Oh, Sun.


Oh, August sun

You smolder

You cast your flame

And blind us, taunting;

.

Defiant claim

On all domain

You, source of life

Our withering frame

Your glaring heat

Disparing;

.

Flowers, fatigued

Straining stems

Not knowing whether to reach

Or cower

Soon

Fall

will send her soothing song

.

Give it up, sun

Move along.
