Children Enjoying Summer



Children in the summer 
Love to laugh and play, 
Making the most
Of each bright summer day, 
Enjoying the bliss
Of a warm day in June, 
Happily playing
And singing a tune, 
Laughing with abandon 
In the freedom of July, 
With red, rosy cheeks 
And a sparkle in the eye, 
Whirling and twirling
In a flash of legs and arms, 
Singing and dancing, 
Displaying all their charms, 
Sailing through summer, 
Faces happy and bright, 
Expressing their enjoyment 
With squeals of delight.

Thanks, Jess! Summer is almost gone now. It goes by too quickly, doesn't it?

Thank you, Sharon. Children are back in school now, but hopefully still filled with the memories and joys of the summer.
