    The Daze of youth were pool days. To tell the truth I miss that time. I felt fine; I felt alive, going and coming and running with good friends. Relaxing days on the shore and late nights by the lake. Those memories take me back. It was summer.
    It was bare feet or flip-flops, we were non-stop under blue skies. We had our fun
    where the green grass was emerald, and the sweet tea was refreshing. Life was hot! It was summer.

    Star gazing as moonflakes shimmer on the rippling surge of Erie’s offering. Near the bonfires of passing time, and feeling as if I’m on permanent vacation. This became my station. Neighbor kids had lemonade stands, red solo cups filled with sunshine elixir, it was a mixture of tart and sweet. A nice retreat from the heat in the shade, this day was custom made for it. It was summer.

    Listening to the late lightning and thunderstorms, fireworks of nature’s provision,
    where star-crossed hearts start each evening with the hope of true love coming to call. All was all right at night! Backyard barbeques, with sweet peaches and watermelon. People sellin’ their stuff as yard sales popped up along the street.
    And Mr. Frosty’s sweet ring jingle made you tingle for ice cream. A young man’s dream. It was summer.

    The pool days, daze of youth. To tell the truth I miss those times, I felt fine. Mom and Dad were still alive. Life was perfect despite our flaws, for it was all for the cause of family. It was summer.
