“A seat on the shady side, after an exploratory day in the fun filled sun, is a nice find” Gun Roswell
A seat on the shady side of the sun
The weary traveler still pushes on, even if the day has been far too warm and way too long Gotta go, gotta see, gotta feel, gotta do and that one final monument or explore the long lost mystery But then at the brink of total exhaustion, when on the very last nerve the traveler is trying to hold on In desperate need, of any kind of chair, bench or seat, one small respite to see, and at least for a minute to take a seat Alas there are so many other seekers running on their empty feelers and so, the so far denied desperate measures Finally kick in and with the last ounce of strength, running that final stretch to that one vacant bench And luckily, it was on the shady side, of a solemn kind of a lonely street, just the place no one had yet seen Except now, me, as I reach before yielding to total defeat, of the ever present heat all around, but a respite nevertheless I have found So, it’s ok for a while, taking deep breaths while settling to the calm and now, it will be a long while before I will move again
“I don’t generally like running. I believe in training by rising gently up and down from the bench” Satchel Paige
A Bench to Sit on, on a Sunday afternoon
The moving, must be forward In this weather so totally hot But I need a place to rest for a moment Before I can continue, this utter torment So, after searching, for a long, long moment I found one seat, made out of wood Maybe, it would not be too hard Rather, just suitably good Or then, it might just be too soft, for a fit! But no matter the surface I so totally need to rest!
