Summers Are Made for Rockin’

Summers Are Made for Rockin’ …

I remember,

summers of long ago,

when days were carefree

and full of joy.

Lazy summers,

spent on beaches –

just lying in the sun.

Nothing could stand in the way,

of a wonderful day,

old rock tunes,

reminding you that,

summers are made for rockin’

and jumping among the waves.

Summers just got harder,

when the days of youth flew by

and life’s burdens –

took most of the happiness away.

Now summer has come again

and brought its beauty,

the days remind me of those,

from my childhood.

So I say,

let’s not waste another moment,

life still has lots to give –

let’s rock this summer while we can.

Let’s rock this summer.

enjoy each sunny day,

sing our cares away

and wear the happy smiles of yesterday.

Just kick off your shoes

and dance beneath the moon.

Let’s rock this summer

and let the sunshine in.

Just sit back and lick an ice cream cone,

take a look around you,

as flowers bloom

and butterflies flit across the skies.

Let those old rock tunes,

fill your heart with the magic,

of all those long-ago Junes,

when school let out

and the rocking began,

soon you will see –

that summer can be fun indeed.

So let’s rock this summer,

summers were made for rockin’.

For feeling groovy

and doing a dance or two.

Let’s rock this summer,

bring back the happiness of yesterday,

summers were made for rockin’

and enjoying each and every day.

    Nice poem Rasma very uplifting. I wish i could go back to those days of college where summer was freedom. Now its 9 to 5. But enough negative vibes I am planning on rocking the crap out of this summer. Nice work.

    Summer rockin memories were fantastic days, long weekend with friends, beach parties, surfing and dancing around the clock. I loved those good ole days, but still rocking in my senior years and enjoying every minute. Rock On, Rock On…pretty poem, lifted this old man’s spirits as much of your poetry does. well penned.
