Some Last Ideas.


Summer season is lastly right here

Faculty is out and fishing time close to.

Barefooted boys and fishing poles,

All the way down to the creek, to the ole swimming gap.

Working by way of the woods, alongside the river financial institution,

That previous boat they used went and sank.

A can of worms, a hook and line,

In search of a fishing pole, if they’ll discover

Two good mates who share their enjoyable,

They run and soar and chase the solar.

Working right here, and operating there.

Not any worries, not a care

However too quickly, it should all finish

For these two that had been good mates.

Summer season comes and summer season strikes on.

A couple of summers in your life, then you definitely’re grown.

However there are days we are able to recall Once we had been mates, we had all of it.

Doug Beggs


‘Tis wonderful to play

Within the aromatic hay,

And romp on the golden load;

To experience previous Jack

To the barn and again,

Or tramp by a shady highway.

To pause and drink,

At a mossy brink;

Ah, that’s the better of pleasure,

And so I say

On summer season’s day,

What’s so wonderful as being a boy? Ha, Ha!

With line and hook

By a babbling brook,

The fisherman’s sport we ply;

And checklist the music

Of the feathered throng

That flit within the branches nigh.

Eventually we strip

For a quiet dip;

Ah, that’s the better of pleasure.

For this I say

On a summer season’s day,

What’s so wonderful as being a boy? Ha, Ha!
