Our Summer Belle
Happily splashing by the pool
Giggling in her own little way
She turns to us with a cheeky grin
& calls 
" it's a lovely day today...come on in for a swim"
As the sunshine tickles her shoulders
She delights in the warmth of the sun
waiting for us to join her in a day of Summer fun
The sparkling of the water 
Matches the twinkling in her eye
our pretty summer belle awaits 
While a cooling breeze whispers by ...
