First Day of Summer


'Tis the first day of summer

The longest day of the year

Been a mild Spring with a fair amount of rain


What will the summer days bring

More of the same or heat?

Thank the Lord for air conditioning

And shelter that can't be beat


Grass and trees are green, flowers bloom

Corn has begun to grow

Swimming pool is open

Adults with kids in tow


Quiet days sitting on the porch watching the world go by

Looking to Jesus, living for Him, as I wait to die

At my age not a negative thought

For in Christ my home in Heaven is bought


My home in Heaven is bought!


First Day of Summer (c) 2016   Quentin Clingerman
