    Summer

    Summer

    As summer quickly approaches and the school year comes to a close I wanted to share my love for summer in this ode. 

    Ode To Summer

    Summer, you are the season for me 

    you are the sun, sand, and sea              

    you bring tan skin, brighter smiles, and less responsibilities 

    you are lemonade stands and laughter 

    friends all day every day, and car rides with the windows down blasting music

     you are late nights, bike rides, and mosquito bites     

     swimming so long finger tips turn to raisins and  after chlorine drenched towels hanging to dry

    The smell of smokey wood and smores along with salty air and watermelon to share 

    you are fireflies twinkling in the night, and

    Crickets who peirce the silence with their subtle melody harmonizing one after the other 

     fireworks on the fourth of July 

    and singing birds for alarm clocks in the late mornings  

    Days where its ok to do nothing but listen to the sound of the earth and lay in the sun 

    The sun who’s golden flecks touch your skin like a warm hug comforting your soul

    You are freedom and joy and adventure and are free from expectations 

    Your memories are what carry me throughout the year,

     even after sun kissed cheeks start to fade, 

    and the first whisper of cold nips the air. 

          So here are some of Hempfield Area’s favorite summer memories…
