Summertime Memories…Again

Today, I was reading through some of my old blog posts.

I came across this poem that I wrote a couple of years ago.

There is just something about summer time…

Summertime Memories

Front porches, tree lined streets,

hometown parades, ice cream treats.

Lightning bugs, stars at night,

running barefoot, tea on ice.

Shucking corn, bumblebees

curtains blowing in the breeze.

Lemonade, country roads,

windows down, lawns need mowed.

Just washed linens smell like sun,

staying up late, having fun.

Coke in a bottle, feet in the sand,

old friendships, lots of plans.

One thought on “Summertime Memories…Again

  1. Love this poem. Very nicely done. The imagery is really nice, and this is something I think that most people would be able to identify with.

    That being said, I would probably take the pictures out of where they are and line them up at the bottom of the poem, side by side, or at the top. Placing them in the middle of it as it is interrupts the flow of the words on the screen.
