This poem describes summer perfectly. Very good job!
This is perfect! I love the rhyme, the meter, everything. It's lilting and it's fun and it's a winner! Tell them I said so! **grin**
Absolutely DELICIOUS!! Title is sort of bland though. ;)
Never mind...What a joy to read this lovely poetry.
I love this poem for the picture of a perfect summer day it sings. The bouncy rhythm even feels like summer! Lovely work.
Wonderfully lyrical ... I believe it was all those verbs that made it sparkle.

The poem felt like ... well, it felt like summer.
You painted a delightful picture of so many aspects of a summer day at the beach.
I wanted to put a melody with your words and sing it!
Wow! This is clever. So many aspects of summer with delightful and unexpected rhymes. Rhythmic and unforced throughout.
What a lot of fun! Right here where we are, it's the middle of winter and I am decidedly feeling the chill. (Mind you, the thermometer's reading 20C) So Thanks for the reminder of how it's meant to be.
This is magical, the way summer is meant to be, the way it was when we were children, the way we can't quite re-create it when the responsibilities of adult life and parenthood encroach!
Simply lovely.
