Sitting on the porch swing in the back yard
Cool, fresh, teasing south breeze.
Lazily swinging in a shower of tree seeds
Dandelion fluff floating by.
Trees and bushes on this side
Trees and bushes on that side
Filled with singing, talking, chattering birds.
The leaves on the trees sparkle and flutter like sequins on a flapper dress.
The neighbour's lawn mower a pleasant hum.
Lean back on the swing cushions
Feeling quiet and secluded
While on the street side of the house
Life goes rushing past.
