Dressed in my glossy red coat
adorned with perfect black dots,
I tip a feeler into the warm summer air.
The bark feels cool and
safe beneath my bare feet.
Perfect for a slow stroll
on a summer day.
Shall I stick close to home or
spread my wings and fly?
The world offers much to explore.
Which outlook will I prefer today–
comfy barkside view or
daring aerial vista?
Summer sweetness beckons.
