Heat

A HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...
A HOT AND HUMID AIRMASS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE REGION TODAY. IT WILL BE EVEN MORE HUMID THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING COMPARED TO MONDAY...AND JUST AS HOT.

O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters.


Fruit cannot drop
through this thick air--
fruit cannot fall into heat
that presses up and blunts
the points of pears
and rounds the grapes.

Cut the heat--
plough through it,
turning it on either side
of your path.

~ H. D., 1922

What a wonderful poem.
HD was a genius. Good ol' Hilda.
I liked her poem "Oread" too.

Who says the Imagists didn't have anything to say? :-)

We too suffer through the heat.
