Sweet Summer’s Day

Sunshine sparkles on the water
as row boat glides by the stroke of the oar

Lily pads bobbing with long tails swimming
Lapping of waves against weathered wood

Brother and sister, tanned by the sun
A can of worms a hundred fold

Cane poles drop their delicate lines
As steadfast by our anchor holds

Silent and strong is our captain,
a man of many hard years

Soft of speech and gentle of touch
Guiding little hands with care

Blue gills and golden bellies
Adorn our treasured catch

Spoons are tools in children’s hands,
While silver scales go flying

Crisp and brown on Grandma’s platter
Bones piled high by Grandpa’s plate

Sleepy heads now are bobbing
A summer’s day, now at end
