Summer Shades


Heavy clouds of summer shades
abate into the horizon
The speed and joy of roller blades
titillate the thrill of immense sensation


Free from diligence at Queens
promenade in solitude to Avonlea
Garden spades full of beans
This is where I'd rather be



In my pasture filled with clover
where raindrops fall like diamonds
I'm your shiny knight and lover
This is where you find my kingdom


Who wants to play summer games
among the chestnut shades
A joker and the Queen of dames
are joined in hearts and spades.
