My kids, grand kids, and I love reading Shel Silverstein poems. We have read them together for years. I was thinking about one from his book A Light In the Attic that is very appropriate today. Please allow me to share it with you—
 

It’s Hot!
By Shel Silverstein
It’s hot!
I can’t get cool,
I’ve drunk a quart of lemonade,
I think I’ll take my shoes off
And sit around in the shade.
It’s hot!
My back is sticky,
The sweat rolls down my chin.
I think I’ll take my clothes off
And sit around in my skin.
It’s hot!
I’ve tried with ‘lectric fans,
And pools and ice cream cones.
I think I’ll take my skin off
And sit around in my bones.
It’s still hot!
