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!
