Summer Sounds--By Suzanne Clement--United States

Summer Sounds

A hot July day,
and there are motors running
all over the place.

In the dining room,
the air conditioner’s running
to keep the house cool.

Yellow-housed neighbors
who attend the church we do
have their driveway paved.

The blue-housed neighbors
are having some trees removed
from their front yard.

Drugstore radio
including some loud music
plays while we shop.

God, I thank you  that
I can compose this new poem
although motors run.

Suzanne Clement is a writer from Dover, New Hampshire.


  1. Words of truth!!! Yes, sometimes the motors of our world can be a pain - but what would we do without them. Nice 'reality' poetry...
