Feel the warm sun on my face,
tanned skin, freckles, a slower pace.
Watermelon, corn on the cob, crabs,
no homework, tests, or science labs.
Laughter, games, friends and hugs,
come to dance with lightening bugs.
A break for students and those who teach,
flip flops, tank tops, a walk on the beach.
Welcoming with a wave at my feet,
the ocean is a summertime treat.
A playground for dolphins jumping pairs,
the salt remains on my skin and hair.
Three months is better than none,
let’s make the most of summertime fun!
