Summer's Serenade


Oh the sounds of summer,

fill the very air.

Laughter in the playgrounds,

from all the children there.

Ice cream trucks that come around,

and play a simple tune.

The chirping of the crickets,

tell the evenings coming soon.

The sound of a crackling campfire,

as embers burn and snap.

The rhythmic beat of a woodpecker,

as his beak he quickly taps.

The hooting of an owl,

so wise up in a barn.

The hum of a big old tractor,

working on the farm.

Splashing water in the pools,

on beaches and in lakes.

Its all a part of summers serenade,

and the sweet song that it makes.
