The giggles of small children down the street
as they hand an old lady her glass of not-so-sweet lemonade.
This is Summer.
The screaming and shouting from across the alley
as boys jump into the pool with the girls and start splashing.
This is Summer.
The high pitched screeching sound from the park
as the swing sways wildly out of control beneath a little boy.
This is Summer.
The laughs from an elderly couple sitting on a bench
as they watch their grandchildren playing with the puppy.
This is Summer.
The sighs from parents resting in the shade of a large tree
as they remember how they were once as playful as their kids.
This is Summer.
The barking of the puppy at the other dogs
as the young children chase it eagerly around another tree.
This is Summer.
