Fairwell Summer...

An ode to Summer, as classes and work are consuming more of my time these days...

Summer is... long, endless days,
Spent soaking in the sun's rays.
Conjures up memories from years past,
Always hoping for this time to ever last.
A time for child-like fun,
With ice cream dripping down a cone it does run.
Moonlit beach-side bonfires burn,
While messily eating s'mores & telling stories in turn.
Ocean waves crash at the shore,
Playing in them leaves me wanting more.
Traces of sea salt & sand left in my hair,
I lie in nature's warm embrace without a care.
