The corn grows in the fields.
Songbirds make their music.
You can hear their singing.
Chipmunks scurry in and out of their holes.
Roses bloom in abundance,
offering their colors, fragrance, and beauty to the world.
Schools’ routine ends.
Families plan their vacations.
Baseball games draw their fans.
Waters warm for swimming.
Trees provide their shade.
Summer annuals beautify city planters.
The longest day of the year arrives.
Everything moves so quickly now.
Hurry, be part of all the action—
You’ll treasure the memories in your heart forever.
