16 Original Summer Poems

Original Summer Poems

These original summer themed poems were all written under the blanketing warmth of that great season–some under sunshine and gull cries, others beneath pine trees with buzzing bees. Summertime is the season of exposure, it’s when I feel most connected to the outdoors, most planted in the Earth. Please share these summer poems with your adventurous, outdoorsy, summer-loving friends & family.

I’m always writing, and will continue to update this list as I craft more poems about summer.

Enjoy!

1.

Pine needle blanket
sunshine lemonade
and the warm June smell
of Summer’s blue sky cascade

2.

Lovingly
longingly
laughingly
I brush the tops
of wildflowers
with my hand

3.

The sun took his descent
and the flowers bowed away
they tucked their petals close
in that same
splendid shutting
the end of every summer day.

4.

The buzz of life
is less than
the buzz of bees

5.

Our sun is a great star
seated above all the rest
and once a year
she gives us
Summer’s first warmth
our most eager treasure
from its springtime chest

6.

Cold spring days
mingling
with the coming warmth of summer
receive none of my affection
they’re really quite a bummer

5/8/21 by PineTreePoet

Those final Creatures,–who they are–
That, faithful to the close
Administer her ecstasy,
But just the Summer knows.

by Emily Dickinson,

7.

Give me wet heat
or dry heat
or any kind of heat
so long as it warm
and I can put away
jackets and pants
begrudgingly worn

8.

Rabbits abound in July
soon as June passes her torch
they’re munching little grasses
on that little tree-line porch.

I’d like to be a rabbit in July
with their no agendas
their little worries
and now I’m so set on it
that if I stay a man any longer
I’m certain I’ll have a big cry.

9.

The sun cracks her morning shades
and lights upon the summer wood

and she and I
well, we lay their smiling
like dirt-laying people should

10.

A silent watcher of this forest
I so long to be
like stone owls
and fireflies glowing
among and against the nighttime tree

I’d sit and wait among the shadows
paused in dark yearning
those sweet ghouls of nighttime
mortal impatience for sunrise, spurning

So sit and wait with me
as the moon climbs and falls
you and I might be an owl
or a firefly
till morning’s bird calls

11.

Summer
knows some synonyms
and they’re mostly
delightful

7/28/21 by PineTreePoet

12.

Flowers and trees:
their floral and piney
breaths of summer air

And not without a fight
they’d take me away
back to some bright screen
and that plastic, well-sat,
comfortable chair

7/29/21 by PineTreePoet

13.

So many thousands
of stars and cicadas
so many songs
to play in my dreams

7/30/21 by PineTreePoet

14.

A peanut butter
and jelly sandwich
outside

8/1/21 by PineTreePoet

15.

A paperback book
and long rays of sunshine
laying in summer grass
you’ll never smile so fine

8/3/21 by PineTreePoet

16.

I trimmed the heavenward branches
from my sweet berry bushes
and then I laid in the grass
with my material superstitions
and they were vanquished by cheery
sunshine munitions

Is summer your favorite season? Do you prefer beaches or summer mountains? I always think I’m more of a mountain guy, until I spend time around the ocean. Then I’m not sure. If I ever figure it out, I’ll let you know.

Thanks for reading!
