Poetry: Summer

A reflection in poetic form about Summer and what it meant to children


It seemed like summer would never end
playing beneath the willow tree.
We'd dance among dandelions and
chase butterflies with glee.
Lightening bugs glow, reminding us of
lighthouses casting their light across the sea.
Quiet whispers and laughter filled our
days and nights with youthful
anticipation of another day to come.
Down by the brook, a dam was built
by small hands. It held back a
stream where tadpoles swam.
we played leap frog there.
To us summer was a time of adventure.
We did not think of tomorrow as
adults did, we unashamedly took what
we could from the day.
Summer, was ours.
A cherished friend,
one we looked forward
to seeing each year.
