Fresh cut grass
Dirt between my toes
Budding rose
Jumping fish
Chocolate ice cream in a dish
Ever-present chlorine smell
On thoughts of Fall no mind can dwell
Summer's luster fades fast
Summer fun can never last

agrees with project827..... the poems and stories are short, sweet, to the point and page turners.

i love how all your poems are short and to the point. i'm not much of a summer person myself, but this is probably my favorite poem of yours. keep up the good work.
