These kids of summer Are on their way to Making new memories And reminiscing old ones. These kids of summer Are old souls Keepers of precious memories And wisdom- hidden by the past, forgotten by the present, seeks to be remembered for the future. These kids of summer Are subtle in the warmth of their young hearts And the secret kindness in their rare smiles. From these kids of summer This kid, of mind, of body and of spirit, Sees the world in the reverse; Learns of things yet to be learned; Warms the bloody cold heart. From these kids of summer This kid, of mind, of body and of spirit, Fills the jar of questions with answers Slowly, in a relaxed manner; Writes stories of memories told Fattened up with faces, circumstances and time. These kids of summer Creates hope For memories not to remain as memories For memories to become stories For stories to be told For stories to be remembered. For these kids of summer.
