There were days at the beach
and lazy Saturday mornings spent at coffee shops
There was a trip to Chicago with dear friends,
And in culmination of everything, my dear sister and brother-in-law returned to these United States, a delight I'm still reveling in.
It has been a lovely summer.
We have picked berries,
and we have picnicked... What more could a girl ask for?
In the summer, the song sings itself.
--William Carlos Williams
