Challenge to write poem that weaves the tapestry, linking rhyme aba bcb cdc etc
Summer's heavy hot air
smothers this Autumn night,
ACs hum everywhere.
Kids sprayed against insect bite
cavort around the backyard pool,
and swim by Tiki torch light
Eating melon juicy and cool,
buttered corn on the cob,
and grilling burgers makes us drool
Should be weather for apple bob,
carving pumpkin funny faces,
and being scared by The Blob
Time to wear shoes with laces,
no more skimpy shorts and flip flops,
Football replaces rounding bases.
We wait for chilly rain drops
to seal the deal on Fall.
But tonight, give Summer its props.
