Summer's Embrace


Summer’s bright beautiful hues

Softly floating pillowing cotton white clouds

Clear glistening transparent diamond drops morning’s fresh kissed dews

Flowers of bright vibrant colors of yellow, pink, purple, red and orange dancing in mulch crowded, secluded crowds

Grass softly painted upon a canvas of different shades of bright and dark green hues

Children laughing,

Children singing

Feeling their sinking bare feet from their tossed canvas laced shoes

Swinging,
With the summer’s winds pushing them higher and higher climbing with the wind kissing their toes.

They laugh.

With thoughts of schooldays and schoolbooks pass at last the fresh taste of summer on their lips.
They embrace summer’s sun kissed arms flirting with her charms.

Of more days of swimming,

More days of playing,
Beneath summer’s sun

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
