“It’s the End of Summer!”

In my family

We have a little joke

About a funny statement

My dad once spoke

In the summer heat

On Independence Day

My dad said his truth

In his own quiet way

“Well, that’s it,”

He said with a straight face

His now-famous words

He cannot erase

“It’s 4th of July,

Summer’s officially OVER!”

His words came out

Without changing composure

Now every year since

We wait to hear Dad say,

“It’s the end of summer!

Happy Independence Day!”

Thanks for stopping by!
