Liquid sunshine is what they said,
when the deluge opened over my head.
I really don’t mind a sprinkle or two,
or walking barefoot in the morning dew.
Precipitation quenches the thirsty land,
and gentle rain showers can be grand.
But this torrent of raindrops is not fun,
I would prefer a cloudless day of sun!
The golden effulgence of the sun,
begins its rise as I run.
Dappled shadows beneath my feet,
is much cooler than noonday heat.
The sun at its zenith, it’s time for the beach,
soaking up the radiance, my mind out of reach.
The joy of the summer solstice frees my mind,
and lets my stressed-out body slowly unwind.
The warmth of the sun upon your face,
flowers appearing all over the place.
Spring is finally here,
a time that you hold so dear.
Winter snow has melted away,
cold weather once again at bay.
Your thoughts turn to warmer things,
and all that summertime brings.
But for now, there’s work to do,
rake the yard and pull weeds, too.
Plant the garden, mow the grass,
help your mom, don’t give her sass.
Your brothers help to get things done,
now you all can have some fun.
You ride your bikes and enjoy the day,
glad that summer is not far away.
The smell of flowers.
The warming touch of the sun.
Spring is in the air.
