August melody

Come hang with me for a bit on a gorgeous August day…

Let’s go down to the lake – I like to think of it as ‘my backyard’ –

And enjoy the scenery for a while;

Countryside

Let’s drink in the perfect reflections

Of summer’s fluffy clouds.

Reflections

As we walk past people’s gardens,

We might discover a bee-autiful surprise.

Bee-utiful

Then it’s time to dash inside and

Enjoy a summer shower with a butterfly for company.

Butterfly

When it clears up, we can release the butterfly

And our souls

As we sit on a bench to enjoy

A truly magnificent sunset.
