Poem 58 – “Popsicles

Standard

“Popsicles” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Popsicles!

Ice popsicles

Are hanging from

My windowsill!

But it’s a trick!

For if I lick

I’m certain that

My tongue would stick!

Day 35 – “Summer’s Coming to an End”

Standard

“Summer’s Coming to an End” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Summer’s coming to an end

September’s waiting ‘round the bend

Once warm weather turns to cool

Just in time for starting school

Putting on our longer sleeves

Jumping into piles of leaves

Colors turn from green to gold

As the new season unfolds

Day 19 – “Piddle-Paddle”

Standard

“Piddle-Paddle” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Piddle-paddle, piddle-paddle, splash, splash, splash

Into the pool with a great big dash!

 

Summer sun

Summer fun

I’ll swim until

The day is done

 

And when my suit

Is dry again

I’ll turn around

And jump back in

 

Piddle-paddle, piddle-paddle, splash, splash, splash

Into the pool with a great big dash!

Day 11 – “Endless Cycles”

Standard

“Endless Cycles” by Jaymie Gerard

 

Springtime is a new day

That starts in early morn

Full of possibility

The time when life is born

 

Summer is the afternoon

Under the beaming sun

The time that we are working hard

When baby days are done

 

Autumn is the evening

Time to reap what has been sewn

Grateful for our harvest

Enjoying how we’ve grown

 

Winter is the darkness

Of night, it is the cold

A time for dreams and wisdom

For sleep and growing old

 

And from these endless cycles

The lessons that we find

Will shape us like the seasons

And change us like the time

 

Day 8 – “Winter vs. Summer”

Standard

“Winter vs. Summer” by Jaymie Gerard

 

When the frigid winter

Makes me chilly, makes me shake

I try to picture for Summer

So the cold I can forsake

 

And when the boiling Summer

Makes me sticky, and so sweaty

I always wish for Winter

So the heat I can forgetty
