'Twas in the morn of summer's heat,

When youthful spirits long for play,

That young Master Harold took his seat,

And thus began his summer's day.

He packed his bags with glee and cheer,

And off to grandmamma's he hied,

A cottage near the countryside,

Where he might frolic without fear.

And as he journeyed on his way,

His heart was filled with joy and mirth,

For summer's sweet delights had birth,

And he looked forward to each day.

His grandmamma, a lady bright,

Had planned a host of games and treats,

And Harold's eyes did dance with glee,

When she disclosed her summer feats.

They roamed the fields and climbed the hills,

And swam in streams where fishes play,

And hunted for the winged thrills,

That danced amidst the summer's spray.

And when the stars shone in the sky,

And Harold lay down to his rest,

His grandmamma would lullaby,

And soothe his weary soul to best.

Thus passed the summer days away,

In joy and laughter, games and play,

And when the summer nights did fade,

Young Harold felt a joy untold.

So when the summer's heat was done,

And Harold back to home did hie,

His heart was filled with memories,

Of summer's joys that would not die.

And thus concludes our summer's tale,

Of young Master Harold, bright and bold,

Who reveled in the summer's dale,

And joyous memories he did hold.
