Summer Slumber by Catherine Conneely

Summer Slumber

Catherine Conneely, Inis Oírr

I’m drunk on drowsiness

While Lord Cat sleeps in chair

Not minding swallows sweep

The dead, dusty air.

 

Jet paints a white line

In a blue frosted sky.

Boats on a glazed sea

Like life, pass me by.

 

Currachs curved and black

Hauling towards the land.

Silhouetted seagulls slumber

Beyond sun sorched sand.

 

I’m drunk on drowsiness

Summer sounds in the air,

Lost in a sultry slumber

While Lord Cat sleeps in chair.
