First Day of Summer

Louie's Flowers
Heidi E. Nelson

"Summer is coming, summer is coming,
I know it, I know it, I know it.
Light again, leaf again, life again, love again!"
Yes, my wild little poet.

Sing the new year in under the blue.
Last year you sang it as gladly.
"New, new, new, new!" It is then so new
That you should carol so madly?

"Love again, song again, nest again, young again"-
Never a prophet so crazy!
And hardly a daisy as yet, little friend:
See, there is hardly a daisy.

"Here again, here, here, here, happy year!"
O warble unchidden, unbidden!
Summer is coming, is coming my dear,
And all the winters are hidden.

"I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream!"
Especially in the Summertime!

Welcome Summer Once Again!

"The Throstle"
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Poet Laureate of Victorian-era 
England and Ireland
