The Summer So Far

Run down a mountain
Then swim through the city:
Welcome to Portland!
Exhausting, but pretty.

Sun Downer

Early to bed
Is impossible here
‘Cause the sun’s up till daybreak
At this time of year,
And early to rise
Can’t be helped: There’s no perk
Such as health, wealth, or wisdom.
Poor Richard’s a jerck.

Solace

The days are getting shorter
But don’t panic! It’s okay!
They’re also getting warmer
As the sunshine goes away.
The sun is overrated
We must logically conclude
(But we only whisper that at night
For fear of being rude).
