Summer Joys


Tree hearts
Tree stars
Climbing trees
Riding in toy cars

Summer shade
Summer sunshine
Summer heat
Summer smells

The joys of childhood
Summer walks


Flowering Trees


Flowers fall,
Leaves begin to bud.
Flowers made fewer,
Flowers made prettier.

Shine Through Rainbow


This poem was inspired by both a nature walk and this song, which I grew up with:

Nooks of darkness
Nooks of light,
Among the leafy trees.

Soon light
Shine through rainbow,
Shine through rainbow,
Says the darkness,
“Shine through rainbow, too.”

Less light,
Less rainbow,
Light and darkness
Hidden no more.

Late Summer


I smell pine
And cooling air
I hear the bugs’ trilling,
Quieting down.
Summer is coming to a close.
