Summer (In Minnesota)
A long cold winter, a rainy spring
Ready for what summer must bring.
Here at last with utter delight
Warm long days and starry nights.
Freshly mowed lawns fill your senses
Baby animals guarded by fences.
Bumblebees and butterflies darting around
Angleworms crawling through the ground.
Oak trees and pine, green as can be
Roses and marigolds sway like the sea.
Picnics and grilling, good food to eat
Family and friends just can’t be beat.
Laughing children swim in a stream
Rest on the banks, lay back and dream.
Enjoy it everyone, whether young or old
Before you know it, it WILL get cold.
Cindy Lyes of Cloquet
Dim and driven
Swinging in the breeze
across the hot pavement
Lovable in singletons
Amusing in pairs
Disgusting in hordes
Our most colorful
blue orange brown
Coming soon on a store near you.
