This poem from poem-a-day (poets.org) popped into my inbox the other day.
The tone hooks me -- late June extravagance.
How again today our patron star
whose ancient vista is the long view
turns its wide brightness now and here:
Below, we loll outdoors, sing & make fire.
We build no henge
but after our swim, linger
by the pond. Dapples flicker
pine trunks by the water.
Buzz & hum & wing & song combine.
Light builds a monument to its passing.
Frogs content themselves in bullish chirps,
on thimbleberries fall, peeper toads
Apex. The throaty world sings
Our grove slips past the sun’s long kiss.
We head home in other starlight.
Our earthly time is sweetening from this.

Funny! I too like it, although you're even better.
