The day is hot, the air to shimmer

Rocks ‘n ground and water simmer.

The crop in fields it’s standing high

wheat and corn and also rye.

**

The sun is burning pretty strong

And even though we get along

Still the burning heat I flee

Seek shelter under one wide tree.

**

Life is nourished by the sun

Nature grows, it’s always done.

Especially during summertime

It feels harmonic and to chime

**

Birds and animals, they grow

In fall they’re gone, as we all know.

Time it moves, all seasons do

We all are caught within this queue.

**

The constant circle of all life

It shows itself within this strive.

A time to come and one to end

We do improve – and always mend.
