"Summer Song"

Leslie Bridger

Leslie Bridger, who was a Manager/Caretaker at Meher Mount from 2010 to 2013, writes poetry and was inspired to write this "Summer Song."

"SUMMER SONG"

With the changing of the seasons
The summer sun is high
The spring bouquet has wilted
The mountain streams run dry.

Beyond the heat hazed vista
The arid land lays bare
The red-tailed hawk flies freely
Upon the warming air.

The ancient oak is thirsty
He's seen it all before
His roots have found their sanctuary
Beneath the hardened floor.

Oh summer song sing freely
Let us dance within your day
For when autumn clouds are gathered
We'll be thankful for your play.

- Leslie Bridger, June 2011
