A Summer’s Fair

On summer days the summer’s rays
Embark on slips of clover
And the cottage receives the shadowy leaves
From fruit blossoming trees all over

The white clouds above in a rhapsody of love
Rise up like a new found romance
As robins sing the orchards swing
And bluebells launch into a dance

As sunny skies dazzle the eye
And the songs of nature are sung
A chipmunk scurries carrying his worries

With food and his life on the run

Soon summer days give way
To colours beyond compare
And the joyful wish of that magical tryst
Recalls that Summer’s fair.
