• Summer

    Slowly - now seeming to take forever,
    It knows it is the best time of the year.
    Wishing now I could just pull a lever,
    Then all of a sudden it would be here.
    The birds will be outside chirping away;
    The trees and flowers will all be blooming.
    Oh come now - I can’t wait another day;
    Nor the cats, who want to be out grooming.
    The pool, at first, will be really cold;
    Filled with all kinds of junk from leaves to hairs.
    Green from all the algae - sometimes with mold;
    But once it’s warm and ready, no one cares.
    Filled with life, summer is the best season.
    So much to do, so many good reasons.
