Smoky campfires
melty Smores
mint flavored ice tea
scary ghost tales

Pink cotton candy
ice cream cone trucks
smooth porch swing gliding
belting camp songs

Sun bathing for tan
in a daring bikini
fun zoo visits
car drive-in movies

Roller coaster scares
square dancing in park
the 4th fireworks drama
late moonlight swims

On blanket star gazing
constellations to see
night owls to hear
tent camping at night

Soft after-tent mornings
wake to glistening dew
song birds auditioning
soft sun starts peaking

Summers of yore
pleasures so many
still wanting more
