Summer of '10 (and, that's not "oh-ten")
You treated us well.
Good weather, great memories, and a tree you did fell.
A family brought closer,
By far away destinations...
A season of bonding and a couple vacations. (This is sounding "Dr. Suess-ey"...)
Bike rides, late rising, and baseball galore...
Never had time for feeling "bored".
Many skinned knees were made better with band aids,
I learned, next time I'm in charge of the candy for the parades.
Campfires, s'mores, and ghost stories told...
Summer, we're sorry to see you come to a close.
Today, summer, we bid you farewell...
Tomorrow brings on the school bell.
Thank you, Summer of '10, for all that you were.
We enjoyed you so much, you went by in a blur.
