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!
