Poem

Summer

 

Summer, summer, sun so bright

Summer, summer, clear and starry nights

Summer, the time when school is out,

Hear the children laugh and shout

Dancing happily are the flowers and trees,

The children rushing home, busy as bees

The water shines like diamonds

The leaves are butterflies in the wind.

Oh, how I love the summer wind.

The birds chirp sweetly and ducks quack happily,

The perfect day for snacking,

But as the days go by,

And the sun's light begins to die,

To the summer we say goodbye.
