Mama deer with young today,
Watching them run, jump and play.
Seeing eagles soar up high,
Summer pleasures, far and nigh.
Ducklings swimming in a bunch,
Tiny birds, looking for lunch.
Under pines, so great and tall,
Summer pleasures for us all.
Chipmunks climbing over me,
Squirrels that sit upon my knee.
Blue jays looking, oh, so fine,
Summer pleasures, yours and mine.
Lying down on summer grass,
And watching clouds as they pass.
While we feel that warmest sun,
Summer pleasures, so much fun.
Sitting by a calm, clear lake,
As the morning does awake.
The rising sun, glows so bright,
Summer pleasures, what a sight!
