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?
