Nobody Told Me

    The wind told the daisies out in the meadow;

    The brook spread the news to the grass and the trees.

    I saw the bluebells ringing with gladness

    And heard the meadowlarks telling each breeze

    That summer had come with all of her promise

    Of nights warm and balmy, days sun-filled with cheer.

    But nobody told me—they didn’t need to,

    For today I went barefoot. I know summer is here!
