Summer vacation is finally here,
With endless hours of play.
Get a blanket, and string up a rope, and
- make a fort today.

Run and chase, and ride your bike
Meet your friends at the park.
Catch lightning bugs in a jar at night, and
- watch them light up the dark.

When summer storms chase you in,
Invite some friends to stay.
Find your favorite board games, and
-have a tournament day.

Sometimes you may need time alone to create,
To make pictures, a play, or a poem.
Hang a sign on your door, "Do Not Disturb!"
-ask for 'room service' meals at home.

A magical thing you can do by yourself
Without even spending a dime, is
By reading good books from the library, you can
-travel through space and time.

There are many interesting things you might do
To fill up your summer with fun, but
Your imagination is the key to your happy days
-under the summer sun.

Wow, I love it! This poem reminds me of a more care free time growing up, especially from the point of view of every child's creative imagination.
Thank you...
