Summertime Rain

Poem By Marilyn Lott

There is nothing as refreshing
As a sweet summertime rain
After the cooling showers
Nothing is ever quite the same

Because nutrients fill the moisture
For flowers and crops as well
You can almost see them grow
After a summer downpour fell

The seeds sprout so much quicker
Flowers grow tall so very fast
Rain gives everything a boost
And of course it doesn’t last

Then the sun comes streaming out
And flowers lift their little heads
Color comes popping out as well
Yellows, oranges, blues and reds

Oh yes, there’s nothing like it
To get a summer growing spurt
Yes, bring on those summer showers
And sun afterwards wouldn’t hurt!

For everything is new

Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too

So many choices that we can pursue
