The sun stands high
When these days are so long
We take the hot black roof off the car
It’s time for a trip
To the lake
We will swim
And boat
We will tube
And kayak
For theres only
So many things you can
Do on such hot hot days
But to play
Like sit and sip
Then swim and take a dip
Until the sky grows dark
Then it’s time.
Time for the young ones
To play
We drink our soda
We play cards
With a wooden board,
And cut off matchsticks.
We play
By the fire
As it crackles.
It sneaks higher and higher
Into the night It roars
And I feed it
It is satisfied
And stronger
I wonder
Can the bean pot
Hold it much longer?
The sun is gone
But the fun does not recede
We will play until the lake is awake
And tells us to sleep
But the lake is glowing
With the moon’s great brilliance
So that leads us to believe
It’s still time to have fun
