The sun of summer has finally come,
And the neighborhood pool is now home for some.
Shouts and laughter can be heard from afar,
As people gather to swim and to spar.
The pool seems to bring out the child in everyone,
It fosters creativity as games are made up and played for fun.
Adults, as well as children, laugh, splash and play.
What a wonderful family activity on a hot summer day !
