Summer in New Zealand 2018 Triolet Poem

Summer weather in New Zealand 2018 so hot and muggy

People driving to the swimming pools and beaches

Children moody and grizzling, not sleeping at night

Summer weather in New Zealand 2018 so hot and muggy

Ground dry, no grass growing, cows going dry, no milk

Streams drying up, no frogs or insects, too hot for them

Summer weather in New Zealand 2018 so hot and muggy

People  hurrying to the swimming pools and beaches

  1. Interesting structure to the poem, Elsie; I’ve not heard of this before.
    Yes, summer can be all of what you’ve written; and then it can be very pleasant. At the moment we are having a heat wave, then cooler days! Poor weather; it doesn’t know what to do…
    Hope you had a pleasant weekend.. 🙂
