Welcome Summer 2018

The world is sleepy, enjoys the heat

so many smells the air tastes sweet

from flowers, honey, grass and hay

kids and sprinklers, time to play.

**

I hear the humming of the bees

I feel the soft wind in the trees

leaves give shadows very rare

humid and heavy is the air.

**

Birds stop feeding all their brood

it is time for adulthood.

No time to keep them safely hedged

they fly free are fully fledged.

**

Birds are sleeping in the trees

they start singing at the silence of bees

when slowly sunbeams are going to sleep

before the world starts sleeping deep.

**

What a wonderful relaxing time

when nature is right on its prime.

But deep inside we know it all

we are expecting soon the fall.

**

But for now we all enjoy the smiles

the smell of ice cream over miles.

The swim in lakes, in pools in sea

In summertime we all feel free.

Wonderful Spring Time May

The sun sends light down to the Earth

to show the world that it is worth

the warmth, the sunbeams and the song

of Nature pure, it can’t be wrong.

**

When the ground it thirsts for something wet

if rain it needs, that’s what it will get.

Darkest clouds clot up there in the sky

The relief the dry ground feels like a sigh.

**

And still very soon after pouring rain

The world is bright and beams again.

The baby starlings scream for food

other birds as well, they feed their brood.

**

At night you hear the barn owls do

demand to eat, they’re hungry too.

Baby foxes play around, while Momma hunts

and the baby deer won’t make a sound.

**

Listen to nature and you can hear its song

when birds are racing all along.

Singing, twittering, and complaint

they live their life without constraint.

**

The world is old but in spring it will

renew itself with master skill.

Give birth, grow up and paint with ploy

colorful pictures for our joy.

**

Enjoy the spring, enjoy the stance

whistle, sing and also dance.

Soon enough the birds will fly.

And the Earth will once more getting dry.

When Nature Awakes

The newest year is still a child

when frost clear air is turning mild.

Snow, it melts and leaves below

last year’s dirt and rests  to show.

**

The sun gets warmer, gains in might,

sends its heat, its warmth and light.

soft blue sky and cotton clouds

make people smile; elicit the crowds.

**

Leaves on trees peak out and show

some new and happy greens to grow.

Nature turns colorful, yellow, red, blue

it’s a miracle of renewal but that we knew.

**

 

Birds twitter while feeding their brood

more and more people we find in good mood.

Young mammals are born, they make us all smile

It’s easy to stay and marvel for just a little while.

**

Nature is great, frozen, when asleep

it can wake, it can die, it can smile and weep.

But most of all while through seasons we roam

Nature is cleaning our Earth and Home.

Summernight’s Spoonerism

The grass is green and so are trees

most flowers are fully in bloom

the air is sweet, a buzz of bees

is far away the air to loom.

***

A little breeze cools down my skin

which sunbeams warmed by heated touch.

I love the light, lift up my chin

close my eyes and enjoy it much.

***

Cold it’s been too long in year

never thought it change anymore.

But finally with summer here

My hopes are high my soul to soar.

***

 

When night’s to come it still is warm

I love to sit outside and read.

Even more in summer storm

watching the rain feels like a need.

***

The only thing that bothers me

is summer sweat soaking my stance.

The smell, the feel I want to flee

Before the grand mosquito dance.
