L is for lake and lazy days
floating on water in the summer haze.
L is for lounging on the dock
a drink in my hand not watching the clock.
L is for lotion of the suntanning kind
and lines on my skin where the sun did not shine.
L is for logs on a bonfire at night
listening to music 'til the morning light.
L is for laughing with family and friends
and longing for summer and all that it lends.
