Summer, you are...
Summer, you are…
Early morning sunrises, coffee on the porch. Watching the first sun-rays spread across the valley. Children biking, sunhats and freckles, cheerful faces and barefeet in the tall grass.
Pink balloons, party in the park, parades and flowers, ferris wheel is waiting.
Hot dogs and watermelon, burgers,pies and lemonade; lunch in the shade of the old oak tree. Bicycle bells ringing, birds are singing. Roses and peonies in pink and yellow. Skies of baby blue.
Inhaling the scent of fresh cut grass and drying hay.
Baseball games and hide-the-flag, bullfrogs croaking, fireflies flying.
Ice cream man and fireworks, July 1st, soggy towels and sandy toes.
Beach and laughter. Swinging in the shade
Swinging quietly : swinging with friends.
Staying up late, no set schedules. Happy times. Making memories.
Summer: you have just arrived, and already we imagine you leaving.
Welcome back; please linger a while.
