“People walking by / As kids beam / At ice cream / On their bicycle rides”

    

The bright yellow sun

The tall grass

The big white clouds

The cold drinks

 

The fresh smell of flowers

The crash of small waves

The buzz of bees

The hot sand in the ocean breeze

The big trees

The birds flapping their wings

The fresh air

The clear blue sky

 

People walking by

As kids beam

At ice cream

On their bicycle rides

 

As the moon is bright during the night

And the bright yellow sun shines over it all

The tall grass

The big white clouds

The cold drinks

And the ice cream

These are the signs of summer.
