Summer's End

Summer 's End

What a sweet time is summer, with picnic-y fun,
Lots of long days to bask in the sun,
What a wonder the fresh foods we so much enjoy
A treat for the each girl and for each smiling boy.

What a great time for travel, for trips and vacations,
Time to go visit our friends and relations.
Summer's the best time to slow with the heat
To sit down and share something special to eat.

There are not many arguments, problems or fights
That couldn't be solved—at last set to rights
Over corn and tomatoes, melons, and such
That's why in summer we don't fuss so much.

Summer's the best time for joy all around
It's the time when our most happy feelings are found
 Time to pick flowers—to play in the shade
Summer's the time our best memories are made.

    1. Thanks Rebecca. I made you miss it or was it the plate of watermelon?
