hotter than July

in fields of golden grasses dry and tall
cicadas singing lazily as one
the air so hot no will to move at all
as languidly we stroll out in the sun

no other living creatures can we see
but seeking respite shade beneath a tree
a small brown bird alights and sweetly sings
as hot leaves sigh he flutters dusty wings
