i thank you for another season
when i can wear my nike air uptowns and polo shirts
looking proper like the words use in a paragraph
though i have to watch my back for goons around the corner plotting
thank you for the spirits of the sun glowing brighter than a person with no sensibility
have to be careful of heat waves that are stronger than a person's bad breath
to be able to take a tan on the beach
just got to make sure i dont get burn like someone having unprotected sex
its nice to take a romantic walk by the docks
make sure people dont litter on the rocks
enjoying a time to have fun in the picnic
just hope it dont turn into a battlefield over a game of cards
Dear summer

Everyone has a favorite season, and it was nice how instead of just writing about why you enjoy summer, you constructed this poem as if you were actually writing a letter to summer itself because it added another dimension to the poem.
