A lethargic daze
Stretching over those
Precious two months
The sun
Blazes overhead
A fog enters my brain
Slowly
The past school year
Drifts out of one ear
The beach awaits
But first
The painstaking car ride
Last minute plans
To visit
My frail grandmother
Camping out
In the local state park
A feast for the mosquitoes
Parties where
Good food dominates
My good sense
In the hammock
Enjoying the company
Of a graphic novel
Half-court basketball
On the driveway with
My laughing family
And school comes in
The dreaded month of
September
The bell rings
I walk to class
English awaits
And now
I truly appreciate
Summer

This poem is, I believe, a universal truth to all people my age.

Actually I do it on purpose, but I now have one (kind of silly) poem called "A tale sadly spun" that uses rhyming and stanzas. And I will have more of those, because it was fun to write!!!

all ur poems are really good :) but just a small suggestion; it might help to seperate then into multiple stanzas ? unless you do it on purpose.... but they all awesome!
