Enjoy summer's pleasures day by day
before they are quickly gone away.
Much too soon, it's back to school
with darker nights and the air so cool.
I'm taking advantage of every hour
While strolling the fields and smelling flowers.
If you can, swim in a lake or the sea
That feeling of freedom will set you free.
Nothing's better than that salty air
with sunshine and wind blowing through your hair.
And if you'll excuse me, I will now disappear
As the smell of autumn is much too near.
(poem by me!)
(And just because it's summer, take a peek at book covers that match bathing suits!)
