2: Ode To Air Conditioning When I come inside From the harsh sun, I look forward to your Cool breeze. It is a whoosh of fresh air, A welcome wind. | I hope all appreciate The relief you provide. You are Like water to someone Stranded in the desert, Or an EpiPen to one Having An allergic reaction. | Who invented you? I wish I could thank him, For you are a savior to me, Refreshing as lemonade On a warm summer day.

4: Leaving the Tree Brilliant colors Flaming trees loosen their leaves. New leaves will come Leaves drift to the ground And tell the branches good-bye, They will not return. Resting on the Earth, Only shifted by the breeze, Leaves lay uncared for.

6: At the Beach Families cavort On warm, soft sand. Laughing, building memories, Surrounded by an ocean Of love, they frolic On the beach. Ice cream silently melts Under the umbrella's Shade. Forgotten, It trickles down onto The worn Beach towel.

8: "For I felt extremely annoyed."

9: Nothing Rhymes With Orange Nothing rhymes with orange they told me, But many things rhyme with red. I asked them why quite politely, And this was all they said: Worry not little child, It's just the way of that word. Don't bother us with your thoughts so high piled With things that are so absurd. When they said that, I left right then, For I felt extremely annoyed. But I discovered around the age of ten Something that made me overjoyed. The word orange had nothing to do with it, But did that bother me? No- not one bit!

10: Meet My Friend Strangle, Steal, Push, Pout. Just some things My friend does To me, And others. But those things are allowed, Because it's just an act For stage. And When we leave, She'll grin and mention how She couldn't look at me or She would've laughed.
