The dandelions are gone
they are but dreams sailing the skies
While the birds are behind the new leaves
singing their lullabies.
The sun stays a little longer
before it goes to rest
to wait for the ripening buds
to reveal their perfumed secrets.
The vegetables are in the garden
praying for more rain
the grass are getting thicker
alas! they’d be mowed again.
while the ants are hard at work
filling their larder
And the little children?
they think it’s already summer
they drag the garden hose
and get a cold shower!
