Summer's Gracious Guests
Oh! Broad the range of summer's treat
But personal the favors.
For one man likes the sun's great heat
Another pines the shaders
Though Each green plant for harvesting
Is nurtured and attended
The plants, to some, most lavishing
By nature are commended
The prosper of the summer sun
For man is not, to his dismay.
But for itself is nature's cause
This concept's reach is far for some
How selfish we to impose stay
When all the world from nature draws!
