Summer is the best time of the year.
Unlike other seasons, summer is the best.
My mom and dad like summer, too.
Mom likes summer because of the heat.
Ever since I was 12, I loved summer.
Rays in the sun keeps the summer going.

wimming in a river
Under the sun
Making new friends
Making lots of food
Exciting the whole summer
Riding bikes on a road.

Swimming in a river
Under the sun
Making lots of food,
Made for every ant.
Exciting and fun while you
Run, run, run!

By Reuben

Springing spring peepers in the night
Unified as one
Making a bell-like sound
Merging into the trees as they disappear
Eating little bugs as they go
Relying upon their camouflage so they are not seen
