SUMMER




In the lazy days of summer

We’ll be sipping lemonade.

With the bright blue sky above us

We will try to find some shade.

We will visit sandy beaches

Cross the lake in our canoe.

In the lazy days of summer

What a joy to be with you.



We will watch the children playing,

Or we’ll sit and read a book!

We may hike and tent on mountains,

Splashing in the babbling brook.

In the evening by the fire,

We’ll sing every camping song,

We will do much outdoor living,

For our summers are not long.



We’ll enjoy the fruits in season,

And we’ll watch our garden grow!

We will gather juicy berries,

Canning jellies by the row!

We’ll have friends and family picnics!

Take a trip to far away,

Yes, our summer months are precious;

God gives joy each brand new day!

Great poem, Karin.... You make summer to be a neat time of the year... I guess I needed to hear that since I am really struggling with our summer this year (due to the excessive heat, humidity and dryness).... I'm ready for FALL.... ha

I enjoyed your poem though...You are very talented.
Hugs,
Betsy
