SUMMER SONG (Monday Poem)

by John Ciardi

By the sand between my toes,
By the waves behind my ears,
By the sunburn on my nose,
By the salty little tears
That make rainbows in the sun
When I squeeze my eyes and run,
By the way the seagulls screech,
Guess where I am? At the . . . !
By the way the children shout
Guess what happened? School is . . .!
By the way I sing this song
Guess if summer lasts too long:
You must answer Right or . . . !
