My Summer Song

V1
kayaks
sail boats
paddle boards
and canoes

all pass me by
on this summer
afternoon

I lie back wondering
if they’re having fun
as I enjoy the lovely
warmth of summer sun

C
in an old tan straw hat
and oversized sunglasses
I happily relax and watch
as each new boat passes

content with feet and hands
dangling in cool lake water
I’m happy as any clam while
splashing like an otter

V2
ski boats
fishing skiffs
jet skis
and pontoons

as I float, drift
in my old black
inner tube

I lie back wondering
if should get a boat
sinking deep in the tube
I smile and say no

C
in an old tan straw hat
and oversized sunglasses
I happily relax and watch
as each new boat passes

content with feet and hands
dangling in cool lake water
I’m happy as any clam while
splashing like an otter

B
with my waterproof uke
that doubles as my paddle
I entertain myself
do re mi dip dip dabble
do re mi dip…
do dip dip do…

C
in an old tan straw hat
and oversized sunglasses
I happily relax and watch
as each new boat passes

content with feet and hands
dangling in cool lake water
I’m happy as any clam while
splashing like an otter

Lots of fun here. Splashing like an otter. I have never seen an otter splash.

Oh what memories this brings back. I spent many a summers day drifting in a tractor tyre inner tube on a lake. No uke paddle though! This has peacefulness and serenity all over it.

Loaded with imagery that's very relatable. And I like this line: I smile and say no. I'm right there with you. The "waterproof uke that doubles as my paddle" sealed the deal for me! Good lyric!

This is a great take on the prompt, the imagery made me feel like I was right there with you. The thought of a uke as a paddle made me chuckle. Nice work, thanks for taking part in my skirmish!
