A Poem for Summer: Shaking the Grass by Janice N Harrington
The summer can be a season of nostalgia, both for summers past and for the blissful events that roll by each day in the heat and sunshine. Janice N. Harrington touches on this wistful reflection in "Shaking the Grass." It's a beautiful piece that explores a quiet childhood in Nebraska, and is the perfect poem to consider during a muggy heat wave, catching some rays. It's also the central poem in her debut collection, Even the Hollow My Body Made is Gone, which is worth a read in its entirety. Happy reading and happy July!
