Call me summer; my days are sunny and hot,
And in the forage you shall find, sweet fruits riped.
I give tastes of fresh salmon cooked in coconut oil
And a drink of wine to toast to the mild island heat
Call me summer for I plait the hairs of the palm trees
I watch the tiny caterpillars wriggle out of humus
The green garden is my favorite playground,
And my laboratory where my fancies are made
Call me summer, I bake the ageless rocks
They simmer, the forest paths lay quiet
And I conjure small snakes on the pathways,
They enjoy the serene weather and heat!
Call me summer for I sing with the waterfalls
The pond is warm, reptiles adore the warmth
The grassland turn alive; yellow and green
And the clay taste for the rains wealth
Call me summer; I dance in the airs of the morning
I sit with the grey owls in the hidden farm barn
Counting the travelling birds that flew the happy day
When the sun set I blow dry air to sooth the night
Call me summer, I am glad and alive!
I give smell of lavender, of mushroom
I throw a party; as mother Nature’s art
Wishing my best to all who love me!
