Sitting in the garden, I heard a child’s voice singing happily.  The temperatures had already reached 35° C. and it wasn’t even 10:00 o’clock in the morning.  Insects buzzed and swarmed dizzily in the haze …  it is too early for the hum of the cicada, though it felt like cicada weather to me.  We finished cooking then loaded up our equipment ready for the second reenactment of the year.  Still, in my ears I heard the child’s song …

in Padua
birds twitter a rooster crows
a child’s song drifts by
the city burns under the sun
awaiting the evening breeze
