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.
