Summer nights, so bright they are,
And filled with pleasure near and far.
The sights and sounds, both abound,
And they fill the air all around.
Crickets chirp with all their might,
And frogs are singing through the night.
Owls, while sitting in a tree,
Are always calling loud and free.
Moon so bright shines on the lake,
Reflected beauty it does make.
Now the loon’s long lonely call
Across the water, heard by all.
Nighthawks swoop, and turn around,
Oh, such delights which can be found.
And fireflies dance so bright,
Showing all, ’tis a summer night.
