A Southern Summer

By: Adesha L. Madison


The summer breeze
Flowing through trees
Making it a pleasure to wear Capri’s
Ruston peaches
Winnsboro-fried Fish
Makes a Louisiana summer
Taste quite delich
Spitting watermelon seeds
Sipping lemonade
A better summer day
Can’t be made!
Water slides and grilling
Make the reunions more thrilling
Courted by the blues
Jazz soothes the soul
Whether you are a youngster
Or from the school of old
A cool drink,
Whether water or wine,
Makes a southern summer
Taste just fine
Slip off your shoes
Cross your feet
Put them under our table
Share something to eat
Hospitality is a must
When you visit our town
Cause in Monroe, Louisiana
We can sho throw down!
