Summer’s Here and Summer’s Gone
by Gabriele Replogle
Ahhhhh, is it time for
Sleepy summer days
Lazy hammock breezy days
Catching rays and catching waves
Flying flags and big parades
Crickets chirp and birds serenade
Grills are lighted and friendships made
Busy nights, busy days
Busy bees with bills to pay
Holidays and dream vacays
Boredom, doldrums, lemonade
TV, TV, DVD me, catching up on all my streaming
Nothing to do, nothing to say
This break is too long the parents complain
Busy bees it’s time to rest
Nowhere to go, nothing to do
Hibernate til summer’s through
Too hot to move, too hot to rest
Summer summer at its best
Sipping drinks and garden flowers
Mowing neighbors wave and talk for hours
Cooler nights and cooler days
Back to school commercials rave
Get your deals and get them fast
Summer days won’t always last.
Frenzied frantic, almost done
Summer days, and exhausted fun.
Summer’s here and summer’s gone.
