Summer Strength and Spirits of Heat

For my first poem in my Poetry Project of 55, I’m writing an ABC Poem.

Definition: An ABC poem has a series of lines that create a mood, picture, or feeling. Each line is made up of words and phrases. The first word of line one begins with an A, the first word of line two begins with a B, etc.

The following is my ABC poem about summer strength and spirits of heat…

About the heats of spirits fly

Bounding through air thickets and straw

Come feel the strength of the summer heat

Down rows of sparkled flowers

Even ’round the winding rivers

Far past the cattails and willow tress

Giving a breeze to guide hot spirits

Hail to the summer of the gods

In and above the clouds of sound

Just below the brights of lights

Keep summer warm and the spirits close

Love through sprinkles and drops of sun

Memories are made to last in warmth



Enjoy  and Reed.
