While Word Chimes Sound

Summer is coming - the kids say “yeh”!
No scheduled hours for school and such,
Day camp and games and lots of play!
Those are things they love so much.

The pollens “blow” my windows shut -
Sneezing the order of the day!
Now staying inside is a must.
Want to be outside,  if I may!

The wild wind blows so very hard.
Birds cling to nests deep in the tree.
Squirrels scurry across the yard.
It’s in the house for you and me.

All my windows get power washed!
Flowers in big pots bend and sway.
I’m just hoping they won’t be “squashed.”
Balcony seems “on the runway!”

It seems like April, but it’s May!
Is “mother nature” that mixed up? 
When I was young, was it that way?
Inside or out, playing was my “cup.” 
Word Chimes are “music” to my ears.
Let us hope they are to your own.
