After a month or two of pleasant times
with temperatures not unduly high
hoping this might be the year
when the weather is kind to us
but this last week things have changed
with not a rain cloud in the sky
and Nature has reverted true to form
with temperatures back to the norm.
After such a slow start
with Mother nature being a dear
we were wondering what is happening to us
able to work outside without fear
of burning up or feeling faint
no energy to do our tasks
but gradually things have changed
and summer time in Texas is here at last.
For those of you from cooler climes
Eighty degrees are probably hot
and if ever ninety degrees it reached
then a heat wave is your lot
try going out when the temperature is high
lets say a hundred degrees or more
and it hits like a furnace on your face
when you step outside the door.
Welcome to Texas is all I can say
as that is what its like here today
a hundred degrees and probably more
when I step outside my door
to go to the store with things to buy
and in the car it is so cool
but when from the car I dare to step
its hot, so bloody hot and I know
that the Texas summer is now on show.
