Hey July!!! Where’d you go?
Come back here you sneaky little month you.
I blinked and you zipped past in a blur
taking your top hat
and red, white and blue banners
and little 5 X 7 plastic American flags on a stick
I mean, I absolutely did not have enough sparkler time…
Seriously, I’m still waiting for a really good
Did you even show us a Grand Finale?
Or did you kinda slink out quietly?
I think you carefully packed your picnic baskets
and lightning bugs in Mason jars
Just simply LEFT.
Tiptoed off the summer stage and left.
From my way of thinking
you could have at least offered
one more pool party
or cherry snow cone.
We could have had more strawberry lemonade
on the porch…
or batch of homemade vanilla ice cream
you headed “outa dodge”.
Well so long
it’s been good to know ya.
I really enjoyed your stay even if it was a short one.
Come back next year and we MIGHT
let you spread your red and white gingham tablecloth
on the picnic table at our 4th of July party.
Did you see very much of July?
It’s like y’all…school starts in 2 days.
What’s up with that?
