Lazy days beneath the leaves,
Soft rain falling, feel the warm breeze.
Shouts of joy, blooms of gold,
Dreams of childhood; tales to be told.
When finally in my older days,
These are the summer memories that never will fade.

I am continuing my series of summer poems. This one I wrote in 2012 as I looked back on my childhood wishing not to be working, but enjoying the summer days again. That feeling of ease, peace and just being in the moment.
Now in retirement, I am beginning to enjoy those days again, and trying to find that ease of summer days from my many childhood summer memories.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

Special Note: The pictures here are of those trees spreading a shady canopy and all the yellow blooms of summer that blaze brightly in the summer sun.
I leave you with a few additional words about Summer Memories. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
