Another summer

To the people who are saying next
We say another summer is coming,
A piece of summer from its woods,
And mom’s palmleaf fans nod yes .

A peace of wild things shall prevail
With another summer coming on us.
Another summer’s wild things come
Floating as shadows in its rivulets.

Another summer will soon be on us
And it will occupy us in its shadows.
To the people who are saying next
We say another summer is coming.

( Referring to Wendell Berry’s beautiful poem The Peace of Wild Things)
