Summer This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I lie on a beach chair
The cool of the morning
Thaws slowly
Comfortably warm
The sun begins rising
As I try
To rest

Eyelids closed
But the sun is still visible
Beating on my face
Hot and unbearable
As I try
To rest

I can feel the heat lessening
The sky growing darker
The evening breeze
Sweeping across me
As I try
To rest

And then the night comes
Moonlight shines
The cold wind
Gives me goosebumps
As I finally
Rest

Congratulations on getting it published, it was good but I've liked other poems of yours even more.
