    July Jubilee

    Apricots, cherries,

    gardens, grass,

    jumping, swimming,

    splash, and dash.

    Flags, fireworks,

    bands, parades,

    ice cream, cupcakes,

    lemonade.

    Hiking, camping,

    clouds, and sun,

    biking, barbecues,

    vacation fun.

    Books to read,

    time to play,

    friends and cousins,

    summer days!
