I Long for Summer

I long for the days
When the sun lasts and lasts
And warms the frozen earth
When it melts the ice on ponds and lakes
And fills them with melting snow

When the sun's rays drift thru the trees
To awaken the forest floor
And calls the animals from their winter's sleep

When the sun awakens my garden bed
Filling the space with colors, green, pink, yellow and blue
With beautiful blooms on roses, daisies, phlox and more
And berries and nectar for bees and the birds

I long for the days
With the sweet, sweet smell of summer
