For many months we wait to be warmed,
Till leaves have blossomed and bees have swarmed,
The winter, cold and bleak and long,
Finally is submerged under a blanket of song.
As birds rush out and insects thrive,
Us humans grab our cars and drive,
To places full of sand and fun,
Our summer of love has just begun.
And as the evenings draw out wide,
Our barbecues fire up outside,
As parties start and drinks will flow,
And sun tan lotion helps our new tans grow.
We emerge into the summer bright,
Absorb the heat and sweat through each night,
We cherish every moment with ease,
Just waiting for a summer breeze.
