Hampton Seasons

Old Hampton is magically lovely
Like a sand castle by the sunny sea.
Here close to shore summery hours take part
In dreams for children and those young at heart.

On golden maize autumn days the town rests
From many visitors and busyness.
Not far, apples glisten at country farms
And get carried to kitchens in glad arms.

Winters angels shine as all Hampton sleeps
Under pure, peaceful, downy snow so deep.
Christmas tree lights bring warm homes sparkling cheer
And reflect memories of gone by years.

When red ruby sunrises in spring glow
While bright blossoms and dewdrops start to show,
An unbroken wish comes true with the dawn -
May joys in our Hampton live on and on! .
