Summer Time

Find a flower, bend down low;

Breathe in its scent, long and slow.

 

Hold a firefly in your hands;

Watch the flicker as it lands.

 

Lie on the grass, eyes open wide;

Count the clouds from side to side.

 

Feel wet sand between your toes;

Wash it off with garden hose.

 

Put a berry on your tongue;

Taste the sweetness, old and young.

 

Feel the sun’s warmth on your skin;

Smell that fragrance; breathe it in.

 

Wake to hear the songbirds sing;

Watch a hummingbird’s tiny wings.

 See, touch, smell, taste, listen:

Summer’s promise lures and glistens.

 

Play and learn.
