Lisianthus adorned in purple, yellow, and white,
colorfully proclaim summer’s delight.
And Petunias embellished in pink, red, and blue,
proudly show off their breathtaking hues.
And Cardinals sing a mid-summer tune,
serenading the beauty of the flowering blooms.
And ruby-throated beauties, dressed in their hummingbird attire,
perch among the lilies for all to admire.
And raspberries appear – a succulent treat,
plump, red, juicy, and deliciously sweet.
And tart lemonade and sweet glasses of tea
are sipped beneath the shade of a an old oak tree.
And thick summer novels lie stacked by the door,
begging to be read on the porch once more.
I will pause to savor each summer memory made,
for soon summertime into Autumn will fade.
