In celebration of a hot summer solstice

The Dawn Jogger was again up early and she’s never seen more folks out – all in attempt to beat the heat of the day to come. To keep up the poetry reading begun when her friend was in town last week, she’s offering up a little Shakespeare to celebrate the summer solstice:

Ariel’s song from The Tempest
Act v, Scene 1

Where the bee sucks, there suck I:
In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry;
On the bat’s back I do fly
After summer merrily:
Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
