Summertime Fun


Sunny hot days brings out out the summertime fun
The kids outside playing
Running with screams of laughter
Lemonade stands at many corners
50 cent for a glass of cold lemonade
Stick ball in the streets, bases on the curb and manhole covers
Bats of broomstick, Balls of tennis
Yelling of strikes and the smacks of hitting the the ball
Cheer of running of the bases
Arguments of safe or out
Bikes and fishing poles heading to the river
Hoping to catch the big ones
Casting and reeling to get a bite
Tales to tell of the one that got away
Forts being made in the trees
Secret clubs, no girls allowed
Pools full of splashing and laughter
Teen Girls laying to get a tan
Talking about boys, giggling here and there
The boys showing off their muscles
Diving to impress the gals on the shore
The joker doing the cannonball to get the girls soaked
Fun, fun, fun in the summertime
Years come, years go
Kids come, kids go
But every summer returns with the same ole fun

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
