Late summers day

What a wonderful day!
The sun is shining – the crickets chirp.
All the things we can do!
Together, through this perfect day.

But you say: you are stressed-out:
this is your only free day.
So, you focus on the things
you don’t have the energy to do.

You find me just annoying.
You find faults and call ’em true.

That’s us.. on this perfect late summers day.

What a wonderful day!
The apples ripeĀ  and the sunflowers bloom.
There’s walnuts in the trees.
And the shed I built is full of fire-wood.

You sigh and call the apples
a chore too hard to do.
Soon the autumn’s here for real.
And the wind and rain to boot.

It’s my fault, you are tired.
My joy’s too much to handle.

That’s us.. on this perfect late summers day.
