The glorious summer noon of boyhood
The luscious droop of June -
Boiling horizon -
The quivering blue of the distance
The air full of the memories of chicken yard noises - heat waves dancing on the blackened grass stems -
out of the white horizon + over the shimmering fields comes the romantic whistle of  a locamotive - oh the agonizing beauty of life -
