Poetry for a Summery Day
Here are a few summer poems by teens I found online. Enjoy a young perspective.
As Time Passes Me By © Alice G. Published: June 2014
The butterflies are floating through the air.
The grass is green,
and the trees are tall.
As the wind whistles through my hair,
I let life pass me by.
As time ticks and the clock goes by,
the flowers grow taller as life passes me by.
And I dream of floating right on by.
But now it’s time to stop dreaming,
and wake up to a hot summer day.

I am privy to the sweetness
Of endless summer days,
Little girls with bouncing ponytails
Enjoying life in many ways.
Verdant trees with lush green branches
Seem to shimmer with delight,
While wild bird song opens us
To joy so very bright.
Pity the soul who does not see
How summertime is made for glee.
The steady hum of cricket song
Comforts the poor heart
All night long.

A sweet slice of summer
On a hot afternoon:
A day at the beach,
Eating a delicious peach.
As you take a big old bite,
You feel the juice begin to run.
This is summertime fun.

Warm midnight falling.
Stars shining, dancing brightly.
Peaceful all at once.

Longer days and shorter nights,
Darker shades and brighter lights.
Louder music and wilder friends,
No need for pencils, no need for pens!
