Why are there so few poems about summer?

“I suspect one reason the poetic power of summer is subtler than that of other seasons is that summer doesn’t really need poets to celebrate or understand it. Summer is its own justification; it celebrates and understands itself. The season, accordingly, tends to be more of a setting or backdrop than a conscious presence in poetry.” 

-Annie Finch – Druidic Difference Poetry – July 17, 2017
