Summer Colonnade

A colonnade, oasis, place to rest
From Summer heat, a visitor obsessed.

It hasn’t been here long but plans to stay
Until the Autumn sighs with cooler days.

Awating temperature’s more temperate fall,
I make this colonnade my port of call!

This one follows Walter’s prompt at
inspired by this line from T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land”:
“With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade (…)”

But a Summer Colonnade sounds like a dance to me! Or a refreshing drink!

  1. Finally getting to my reading and enjoying! 🙂 Yes — I’ll take a Colonnade please — so appropriate for the dVerse bar! 🙂 Enjoyed this one.
    On the other hand, I’ll stand in the shade neath the colonnade, with my colonnade in hand! 🙂
