Though summer is coming to an end,
traveling and visiting a friend.
The weather has brought the heat,
blistering and burning like BBQ meat.
The straw hats with big wide brims,
helped make the skin look not so grim.
Putting the creams and lotions to use,
sheltering, protecting trying to diffuse.
Yet wouldn't it be better to stay indoors,
where air conditioning can cool you more.
Then medications can be put away,
the sun still shines, but you look fine this day.
I know you say, the outdoors is best,
but indoors you can get needed rest.
From the heat, unwanted insect pests,
read a book is not hard to digest.
I know you don't all say fine and agree,
you'd rather be out and water ski.
Pick up that book it's about time,
relax, keep cool, even if it's summertime.
Now I would like to recommend a book,
Open it up and take a good look.
It's been around for many years,
The Bible whose verses conquer your fears.
