Summer (The Green Hammock) Sir John Lavery

Everyone Needs a Hammock

Take the stress of the day and
lie down with it
in your hammock.

Swing softly with the breeze.
Watch the clouds, or stars,
the branches above,
or twittering birds
or playing children,
or read your book.

A tall glass of lemonade
in the summer.
Warm cider in the autumn.
A cozy quilt in the winter.
A Roger Tory Peterson book
in the spring.

And maybe a cuddle with
someone you love…
sure, the kids will all fit, too.

More hammocks,
less worry.
That’s what everyone needs.
