Ah, yes, it took you a long time, a long hot Summer in effect, to get your hammock up and back into shape from last Summer's use. But by the time you got it read Summer had finished and Autumn was on its way.
Or at least that is one reading from it. There's often an allegorical meaning behind the scenes. :-)
Thank you so much for taking time to read and leave a detailed comment! I really appreciate it.Yes that could be one way of reading it.It may also mean that the hammock was always out of shape, bulged out, supporting people and finally by end of summer it got back in shape but the people who used it a lot didn't :-) .
