SPLASHING AND SWIMMING IN THE SUMMER TIME
Summer Morning Circle
By Jennifer McCormack, Summer 2010
Splashing and swimming in the summer time
Cooling off in the water is just fine
Diving and kicking, keeping ourselves cool
Splashing about at the beach, creek or pool!
This morning we go creeping down to our little creek
Where the water trickles slowly and it isn’t very deep
Heavy rocks and little rocks to lift and throw!
Make a rock castle and watch it grow
Today we are swimming in our local pool
There are lots of people here keeping themselves cool
Breast stroke, free-style and back stroke too
We practise our swimming in the local pool
Running down to the beach on hot, hot sand!
The waves foam and roll and crash on the land
“Stay between the flags”, the life guards say
Swimming with our boogie boards all the day
A drink of water and long-sleeved clothes
A hat to stop the sunfaires dancing on my nose
Wherever we swim, we must learn
To enjoy the water without a sunburn!
