The Good Old Summer Time

                              Summer is slowly passing by
                              tomorrow is already the first of July

                             Hot weather is upon us, it's time to retreat
                             under a big shade tree down by the creek

                             I'll grab the fishing pole and fish for awhile
                             then jump in feet first with a big, old smile

                            When I'm done and the day is through
                             I'll catch fireflies, something else I like to do

                             The good old summer time, the best time of year
                             I' going to enjoy it while it's still here

                             Susie Swanson      

                            Folks I just don't know if this one cuts the mustard or not.
                            Oh well, hope you  enjoy the summer, Blessings Susie

    I always love your poetry, Susie.... When I think about summer being my least favorite season, all I need to do is to read your poem... That will change my mind!!!!!! ha

  9. Hi Susie! I love the poem, it really captures the lazy feel of summer. I love the line about fishing at the creek and jumping in with a big smile! There are few things in life that feel so refreshing! I have fond memories of fishing with my brother when I was a young girl. We lived by the ocean and we would fish off of the pier. It was so wonderful to get up early in the morning before the it was light and go down to the beach. We would get donuts and go to the bait shop and then fish until about noon. I hope you are having a lovely weekend! Delisa :)

  10. Thank you Maggie and Delisa, Just a passing thought or two. Glad you both liked it and thanks for stopping by..Susie
