Bailey’s Summer 

The school bells rings one final time

Summer plans include taking their time

Vacation dreams put a smile on every student’s face

But Bailey can think of only one place

Her grandfather’s vineyard is just a bicycle ride away

She and her brothers pedal up in the morning to stay

Where Bailey can dream and make up her songs

Joining her brothers on walks when they let her come along

But her sanctuary is among the vines with a blanket on the ground

That’s the spot where Bailey will usually be found

With a journal well worn and a pen in motion

Where her narratives and melodies flow like an ocean

Penning tales of good fortune and meeting magnificent folks

Sharing them with grandpa and even telling a few jokes

Writing songs of beauty and dancing with heavenly creatures

She meanders through the vineyard admiring every single feature

Until grandfather calls for the kids to come in

Each day plays out like a beautiful violin

Sometimes friends visit to sing with her and play

This is Bailey’s Summer. She’s content either way

Grandpa says that one day the vineyard will be hers

He says she can sell it if she prefers

Bailey will never let it go she says- No way!

Because when that day comes, Summer will be every day.
