Sweet Summer 1912 -- John William Waterhouse

Sweet Summer 1912 — John William Waterhouse

The world is filled
with the sound of water,
the rustle of lives teeming
beneath a thirsty earth.
I languish among the peonies,
heavy with heat
the earth calling us all
to its measure.
Skin rises to tease the sun,
looses a brazen sigh.

  1. the earth calling us all to its measure…is a very cool line, and it makes for a nice contrast to the skin rising to the sun…i can imagine the sigh, caught between those two…smiles.
