Ode to Summer
Oh these months we long for you
Winter days can be so blue.
Your sweet arrival we greet with glee
Time outside for you and me.
A time to pause and take a rest
Which helps return us to our best.
You are so beautiful and so fleeting
We look forward to every meeting.
Vivid colours, smells and skies
Being outdoors seems so wise.
Let the rays touch our skin
As fall colours will soon begin!
