HOT JUNE DAYS

HOT JUNE DAYS

(tune: “Animal Crackers in My Soup”–to sing it!)

Sudden spreading algae blooms

Cover quiet pond lagoons,

Lily pads bursting out so far…

Cradling gentle lily stars!

Sweat drips down like salty rain

Making us shower all over again,

Grass grows quicker than we mow…

Professionally planted flowers show.

Rain clouds come to wet the ground,

Thunder and lightning slow us down

To enjoy a quiet book…

Or resting in a favorite nook!
