Summer breezes, scorching sun,

Sweat glistening on an errand run.

Slushie drinks, ice cream cones,

Day-long trips, coming home.

Vacation travels, sights to see,

Memories in making — mountains or sea?

Fireflies and June bugs,

Garden goodies with ice tea to chug.

Children in sprinklers with sparklers at night,

Parents wonder — will bedtime happen tonight?

The heart of summer explodes with heat,

but joy remains from memories sweet.

When winter winds blow strong and bearish,

What summer memories will you cherish?
