Make a splash, tumble down

splatter upward, hit the ground.

Summer’s coming, be prepared

for squirting guns, and sprinkled hair.


Frowning killjoys not allowed

sunshine only,  no dark clouds.

Swing on ropes, jump from trees,

skim the lakes on water skis.


Six months later winter takes

away the shimmer of our lakes

Enjoy it while the beauty lasts

for snow and ice appear too fast.
