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.
