Afternoon In July

Children playing in the park, 
Laughter echoing in the wind, 
Feeding the ducks, 
Ducklings in tow, 
Birds singing sweetly, 
Rabbits burrow. 
Swings and round about, 
Children's laughter how they roared,
Sliding down the chute, 
Not one child bored, 
Flower to flower, 
Buzzed the bee's, 
Church bells ringing, 
Through the spring breeze, 
Tractor plowing near fields of sheep, 
While nearby cows lazily sleep, 	
Birds flying through trees So tall, 
Whilst children paddle near the waterfall, 
A chirp is heard near the thickets, 
A closer look reveals a. thousand crickets,

    I loved how you took me to that natural countryside scene that could be a refuge from the busy city life most people are living! at least I am! Loved your poem! Omneya
