The author's comments:
just a simple haiku about how frustrating it is to me that summertime can't just hang around for just a bit longer...

To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"

I love summer too...even though I live in Texas and it gets up to like 120 degrees. Loved the poem :P

Yeah I love summer too but snowflakes on the grass is such a pretty thing that it probably would cancel out my wishing for summer but that's just me. I definitely like the poem!

A unit of pronunciation having one vowel sound, with or without surrounding consonants, forming the whole or a part of a word; e.g., there are two syllables in water and three in inferno.

its pretty easy. 

1st stansa: 5 syllables

2nd: 7 syl.

3rd: 5 syl.

 

the main theme is supposed to be about nature, but of course you can "break the rules" sometimes.
