Summer is here again
Flowers are blooming outside my apartment
Purple buds on this hot summer day
Who created these beautiful flowers
The gardener or the creator
I call God the creator of the heavens and the earth
Who created the seasons
When flowers burst through the ground as the snow melts
Yes, spring was here and now summer
A day to go to the beach
Jump into the ocean and ride the waves
Watch children playing building sandcastles
Smell the ocean breeze
Pick up a seashell on a hot summer day
