Summer Poems

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.

    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.

  11. A Time Of Freedom

    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.
