Where did summer go? Can you stay for awhile?
Sand in our toes, we slurped ice cream by the beach
on warm, sleeveless nights, we lingered, walked a mile
green mountains, or city lights, all in our reach.
Blue jays fluttered, bees frolicked through the flowers
Kids giggled, gliding swiftly on a slip and slide
And I leisurely read three books, all at one time.
Searched for ramen, amidst heavy rain showers
Rendezvoused with old and new friends ~ what a ride
Back home, enjoyed Flaming Hot Cheetos with Lime.
Summer, rest here. Take your sweet time, oh please?
Those late sunsets, we laughed freely, without care-
Nights now slightly cooler, a crisp scent in the breeze,
as fall comes, let it bring adventure in the air.
