Poetry About Enjoying the Summertime Season

Summer is the stuff of dreams. When adults sit at their desks, and children sit in school, they dream of summer. Summer is the time of infinite fun. The day seems to last forever, and the fun never stops. It is a time of romance, excitement and an enhanced enjoyment of life. Somehow summer never seems to last long enough. It is always over before we get a chance to fully experience its power. This is true of all things wonderful. They always seem too short.

34 Poems About the End of Summer

  1. 1. Summer's Melody

    As the season of summer draws to a close, I started to reflect on the beauty of this season and how nature truly comes to life. Birds happily singing, flowers in bloom, and golden sands that glisten. I feel it's so important to appreciate and admire the beauty of the world that surrounds us. I was inspired by the beauty of a gentle swan gliding gracefully upon a silver lake. As it maneuvered, it formed calming ripples on the water's surface, and the summer glow of sunshine shone happily above it.

    Rippling crystal waters shine like silver to reflect summer's glow.
    Soothing and calming in rhythm, echoing its lyrical flow.
    Magical music of nature, a symphony of splendid delight.
    Skies like blue oceans in paradise, birds soaring to grasp full flight.

  3. 2. Missing Summer

    • By Destinee
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    I'm not a poet, but sometimes I'll think of a good stanza and make up a whole poem. One time, when I was a little younger, I was over my grandma's house, I wrote a poem about myself, and when my dad got home he was astounded. I don't remember exactly what the poem said, because I lost it during a move, but I was excited, and it makes me want to write more.

    The grass so green,
    the sun so bright.
    Life seems a dream,
    no worries in sight.

  5. 3. A Time Of Freedom

    • By Abbey Silent
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    This is a poem I made about how I feel when I think about summer.

    Morning's soft air, touching everything with such care,
    Caresses a young face in a quiet, secluded place.
    Smile planted strong, heart beating on.
    Only one thing is on her mind, and that is summertime.

  6. 4. Summer's Splendor By The Sea

    My short poem is about the gentle soft blue of the summer sky, the wonder and beauty of the ocean, the rays of the warm glistening sun, the fun and the splendor of Summer spent by the seaside for the young, old, and everyone in between. It's just a mystical place to be during Summer. It's a place to feel free and with nature.

    Summer's splendor by the sea,
    a gentle, blue serenity.

    Caressing rays of golden sun,

  7. 5. The Summer's End

    The poem tries to describe the changes that occur as summer comes to an end and how I respond to it emotionally.

    The familiar rhythm of the cricket's chirps
    Create the soundtrack for each day,
    Echoing Summer's end
    And that Autumn's on her way.

  8. 6. Summer Time

    This is an acrostic poem about my favorite time of year. It's about living in the moment and having memories forever.

    Sun shines on your skin and mine
    Until it sets way after nine.
    Memories made with a cold drink in hand.
    Moments to cherish with feet in the sand.

  9. 7. Summertime

    • By Raheim Robinson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015

    My name is Ra'heim Robinson. I am a 16-year-old teenager from Mississippi who likes to write poems in my spare time. My future plans are to serve in the U.S. Air Force, but if my poems are good enough to sell, then I would like to become a poet.

    Longer days and shorter nights,
    Darker shades and brighter lights.
    Louder music and wilder friends,
    No need for pencils, no need for pens!

  10. 8. Solstice Queen

    Summer is such a beautiful season of the year, all of the lush green and beautiful vibrant colors but most of all the perfumed scents of all the flowers, bushes and trees, the beautiful creatures come out to greet Summer as well, or should I say Summer brings the creatures out of hiding and to life. The butterflies are particularly one sure sign of Summer, along with fireflies that sparkle in the evenings, the smells of nectar of fruit trees. Summer touches nearly every place with her beauty!

    As she tip-toes cross the sea,
    she slips in so subtly.

    Sharing her charms upon the earth,

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2019

    My poem is about summer days and to appreciate the life around you.

    The stars, they fade in the daylight.

    The cold breezes are strong in winter and spring,

  13. 11. Oh, How I Love Summer

    This poem came from a place of gratitude. Having had some health issues, I began to look at the small things around me. My love of the outdoors, especially my garden, made me realize the peace it brought to me. The winter seemed to drag on for so long, no sign of summer. May and June were so grey and overcast that it dimmed our souls. Finally one morning, the sun's rays shone early through my window, and the joy of summer enveloped me. Then inspiration took hold and my poem was created.

    Though May did bring her deepest grey
    And June did bring her gloom,
    I woke this morn in a glorious way
    To Sunshine in my room.

  14. 12. This Summer Day

    Barbara Crooker is a poet, editor, and writing teacher who started this piece during a workshop she taught outside in a beautiful garden. One of her pieces of writing advice is “see what’s around you” and “write through your senses.” The quote about the shady side of the garden came from a conversation with a book group friend about being in the arc of their lives. And although there is nothing in the poem that reflects this, her mother’s long dying is in there as well, in the deep background.

    That sprinkler is at it again,
    hissing and spitting its arc
    of silver, and the parched
    lawn is tickled green. The air

  15. 13. Summer Longing

    Summer is more than just meets the eye. It's my favorite season because of the memories I have that take place during those few fantastic months. It's a time for us to relax and finally enjoy a long break from our busy school lives, and I have always believed that it's best to take advantage of what little time we have during summer. During the months of rain and clouds, I always begin to miss summer greatly, and these are the things I miss.

    Not just the sun,
    It's the memories.
    The fun,
    The love,

  16. 14. It's Raining

    • By Rebekah Easom
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    Descriptive poem about being stuck outside in a rain storm and trying to keep dry with thunder and lightning crashing.

    It's raining hard with thunder bolts
    and lighting with a thousand volts.
    You try your hardest to keep dry;
    it seems the rain won't let you by.

  20. 18. Summer

    • By Ramin R. Alam
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    What this poem means to me is the freedom of finally being out of school and being able to do anything. Going out whenever, not having to wake up early, hanging out with friends. These are all things I think of when summer comes to mind. The reason I chose to write this poem is because summer is my favorite season and it's where my most memorable moments happen.

    The sun is out.
    The children scream and shout
    All about.

    Prolific poet Barbara Crooker recaptures on a flat canvas (paper, words) the three-dimensional world of her childhood. The poem takes a deeper emotional turn towards the end.

    on hot front porches, cutting paper dolls from Sears
