Set Your Table With Flair--Summertime Tea

Summertime Rolls 

Fell into a sea of grass, 
And disappeared among the shady blades---

The children all ran over me, 
Screaming tag---
And you are the one!!

He trips her as her sandals fail,
She says, "Stop!  I'm a girl!
Whose fingernails are made of her mother's pearl---"

Yellow buttercup, helicopters, 
Orange buttercat chasing after---
The crazy bee mad about somebody!

Me and my girlfriend don't wear no shoes
Her nose is painted pepper sunlight
She loves me,
I mean it's serious,
As serious can be!!

She sings a song and 
I listen to what it says----
Well, if you want a friend,
Feed any animal---

There's so much space, 
I cut me a piece with some fine wine,
It brought peace to my mind in the Summertime,
And it ROLLS!!!!-----

Summer, ohhhhh----
Oh, oh, oh....
Summertime rolls!!

  1. This is such a beautiful spot for tea. Nature is all her glory. You have created the perfect place to curl up with a book and a long afternoon nap. I am planning to have a picnic with my hubby this Sunday. We usually go to a beautiful lake near us. I guess great minds think alike. Thanks for visiting me. I hope you stop by again.

    Have a happy and fun weekend.
