I write so I’ll know what I’m thinking
Sunshine beaming golden heat
For lots of fun outdoors;
Vacations, for a sweet retreat
To mountains, plains and shores.
Kids in constant summer motion,
Free from teacher’s rule,
Head to toe in suntan lotion,
At the beach or pool.
Inflatable rafts on which to float,
Camping and fishing gear,
Rowing or sailing or waterski boat,
Tell us summer’s here.
Things we can’t do the rest of the year
Are summer’s special treasures;
Oh summer, summer, linger long,
And give us all your pleasures!
