First day of summer

First day of summer

It’s the very early morning
The summer’s just begun
Although the weathers kind of cool
I know that soon the sun
Will be burning down on me
But me, I love it all
I really love these summer days
They’re really beautiful.

It’s lovely in the early mornings
To see the sun come up
And hear birds singing joyfully
It overflows my cup
All this love that it brings out
As it shines on down on me
I love to see those Lorikeets
That feed from bottle brush trees.

How I love the beers and barbeques
In a garden filled with flowers
As I watch the many colored parrots
I could sit there for hours
And watch the sun that burns on down
Then rises from the trees
And I love it in the afternoons
To feel that cool sea breeze.

    Hi Peter, Another fine write my friend. I honestly don't know how you stand the heat. I'd never be out the door if I was there. Funny thing, I can't stand the heat, I can't stand the cold. Catch 22. Once again you bring us the joy of nature once again. I love the musical, gentle flow that comes from your work Peter, It always makes me feel good inside. That is a gift in itself. You can see that you really Love what you do in the writes. Have a good day. Later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Sorry Jack, I have heard about your Canadian winters. I am glad I chose to come To Australia where it never gets that cold. Mind you, they tell me that Canada is a beautiful country. Thanks for reading and commenting....peter.
