A Very English Summer
by Paganini Jones
wine, notebook and pen by
cricket whites and
crack of leather on wood
strawberry cream tea
stroking the fur
she finds that bees sting.
toddler's first summer
awry on old man's head
picnic on the lawn
set out for dolls
the cat stalks sardines
Just fragments that make up memories of summer

Fascinating fragments that taken together, paint a complete and colorful portrait. I especially loved the first stanza and "the crack of leather on wood." For you it's cricket, for us it's baseball, and either way it's delightful!

Your words conjure up delightful idylls for this Anglophile - thank you :)
