Bright sun blinds and reveals At one and the same time Glaring off a windshield Coloring a rose sublime.
Hear the sounds in the heat Of children laughing, playing Of water cooling and flowing, Green garden hoses spraying.
Breathe in the blooming flowers Smell the newly mown lawn. Taste and see and feel Before July is gone.
Ball games, picnics, and fireworks, Lakes and pools and streams Willows swaying in the wind And dancing in our dreams.
The hot and restless nights Whirring from the fan Smiling at the memories Of when this day began.
