Ode to Summer

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.

  1. Yes, more summer!!! Loved the lyrics here. I am a summer guy. Winter is for Eskimos, not beach bums like me. lol

    Hope your week is going well.


  2. I have no idea where it went! Although I’m ready for fall, I am not at all happy with how quickly this year has gone by. Where did summer go? Where has this year gone?!
