Goodbye Summer

The winds of summer, hot and dry,
lazy days go quickly by.
Sun so hot it burns your nose,
seasoned grass t'ween your toes,
mowed and raked in piles and rows.

Flowers need water...you do too!
Sprinkler system aimed at you
and friends who come for fun and play,
spend a lazy summer day,
kids at heart in sun's hot ray.

Steaks they sizzle...'burgers drizzle,
hotdogs burst, then they fizzle.
Smells so good, can't wait to taste,
we sample chips in our haste
and nothing here goes to waste.

Iced tea sweats in glasses tall,
lemonade 'n pop for all,
ice cream churned 'til cold and creamy,
in the sun makes air turn steamy
and pies and cakes makes us dreamy!

Soon t'will be a memory,
these lazy days so hot and free.
Mother Nature has the rule
and kids are soon back in school.
Summer dust that winds did blow,
hasten Autumn's amber glow...
summer's gone...where did it go....
