June Jive

She came down with a fever
A case of the June Jive
Heat swept across her brow
Red peppers crushed along her spine
She felt tingly and strutted around bare
Her pink toes melting in the summer air
Her dress was like a butterfly sprouting wings
Off it flew in the wind and swam in the breeze

Naked in the cool stream drifting
Eyes dropping low like sunset
She spotted a fellow sporting fever
His back was brown and perspiring dew
Hot gaze tugged her body like a riverboat
Sailing limbs encircling the summer sun
Lips itching with a case of June Jive
Find a quenchable mate to pass the time
