Summer

Do you remember when you smelt the freshly cut grass

after your dad has just mowed it

Do you remember when you smelt

the burning bark on the treehouse

that your dad just built the other day

That was summer.


Do you remember when you went outside

and you smelt the freshly chopped flowers.

In the garden

That was summer.


Do you remember when you cut a juicy nectarine  

you took off your t shirt and smelt the sunshine

Just before you hopped in the shower

That was summer.


Do you remember when you smelt

the bacon and beef burgers

They were cooking on the barbecue.

That was summer.


Do you remember when you smelt the fresh pine trees.

when you hopped into bed

and you felt the cool breeze from the fan.

That was summer.


Do remember when you went outside

and you felt the hot sand at the beach

That was definitely summer!

  2. Will, I loved reading your poem. Your ideas made me think of long hot summers when I was a wee girl. So proud of your first piece of writing.
