It’s like Summer on Palomar!

Here is a lovely poem for you about the pleasures of being on Palomar in the Summer.  The author Cathy is a part-timer on the Mountain with her husband and has a Fall poem headed our way too!   She said she is, “3/4 through my year of a poem-a-day!  Next year I am going back to my usual New Year’s Resolution to lose ten pounds”.    Thanks Kathy!  Enjoy!

Palomar Summer

On Palomar the summer day

Is splashed with gold and green

The sky above is azure

The air is crisp and clean.

The bees are making honey

The squirrels and chipmunks play

Wildflowers scent the gentle breeze

Which cools the hottest day.

We gather at the general store

Or plan to take a hike

We bring a picnic to the park

There’s plenty here to like.

Still later, when the sun goes down

We sit outside and gaze

While countless stars and constant moon

Keep their appointed ways.

You may come for our bar-b-que

Or just to get away

You only plan a visit…

I predict you’ll want to stay!
