In the shade of the porch. It is a mighty fine place to be. It is usual to contemplate the evening shade, particularly in the middle of summer when temperatures rise. Tempers flare too. Folks can get just so hot and bothered. It is a welcome relief. In the shade of the porch. To be sitting in the evening shade, cooling your emotions, cooling your tired old body. Sipping on a glass of red. Downing a real cold one. Or drinking on your cooling camomile tea. Whatever floats your boat. The porch bench is comfy too. There are cushions, you see. The evening shade passes and night comes. You look forward to the next day.
You look forward more to the next evening shade rather. But why wait? Why keep yourself all hot and bothered throughout the day and wait for the next evening shade when you can just seat yourself on your screened in porch in Ithaca NY already. That way you can just sit on your porch whenever you darn well please. You do not need to wait for the evening shade. You do not need to wait for the hot sun to just cool off already. It will not do that no matter how much you plead. It is stuck in its natural ways. So old school, never going to change. Has been that way for billions and billions of years. And billions and billions of years.
You do not need to be stuck in your ways. You have it in you to be as flexible as you like with your days, from morning to night. You are human. It is human to have those emotions. And it is so nice on the screened in porch.
