Short Summer Poems For Kids

Something Special In The Air

There’s something special in the air

It’s a feeling that can’t be found

Anywhere but in these long summer days

School is out, the sun is shining

And there’s nothing better than this time of year

When everything is new and nothing is planned

These are the days we’ll always remember.

Have Some Fun

When summertime is near

Kids can feel it, sense it, see it everywhere

The sun is shining, the sky is blue

And all we want to do is have some fun

June, July, and August – we love you!

A Time of Happiness

Summer is a time of happiness

All the kids are out of school

And they’re playing in the sun

The days are long and hot

And everyone is having fun

There’s ice cream and barbecues

And everything is just perfect.

The Weather is so Fine

Summertime is here

And the weather is so fine

The sun is shining bright

And the days are so long

We can go swimming in the pool

Or we can go to the beach

There are so many things to do

In summertime

There’s no time to be bored.

The Dog Barks

The dog barks, the sun wakes,

summer is here.

Fruit trees in blossom,

bees buzzing in the air.

Lazy days ahead, time to just enjoy

what summer has to offer.

Dog barks summer

The Sun is Beating Down

The sun is beating down,

but I don’t mind.

I’m wearing my sunglasses,

and I’ve got my ice cream.

I’m listening to the waves crashing,

and I’m feeling so free.

This is the best time of year,

and I’m so glad that summer’s here.

Sweetest Time of Year

The sweetest time of year,

Summertime is here!

The sun shines warm and bright,

Daytime lasts all day and night.

All the animals are out,

Running and playing in the dirt.

The world is so alive,

So much to see and do.

I never want summer to end,

This is my favourite time of year.

Finally Here

Summertime is finally here

The sun is shining and the sky is clear

We can go to the beach and play in the sand

We can go swimming and eat some candy

We can sit in the sun and just relax

Or we can run around and have some fun

It’s the best time of year

Summer, summer, summertime!

The Days are Long

The days are long and the sun is high

The weather is warm and the sky is blue

Summer is here and we all can’t wait

To go to the beach and play in the sand

We’ll go swimming and lay in the sun

Until it’s time to go home at night

There’s nothing better than summertime

And we all hope it will last for a while.

Finally Summertime

It’s finally summertime

and that means ice-cream time

I can’t wait to get my hands on a cone

I’ll eat it while I’m lying in the sun

There’s nothing better than enjoying ice-cream

in the summertime.

The Sea

The sea is blue and calm today,

Reflecting the summer sky above.

A gentle breeze whispers through the trees,

Bringing the salty smell of the ocean close.

I sit on the sand and listen to the waves,

Mesmerized by their soothing rhythm.

Thank you, for this summer day,

Filled with peace and beauty unsurpassed.

Calm sea

Sand Between Our Toes

There’s nothing quite like summertime

When the sun is shining and the waves are loud

We can feel the sand between our toes

And the salty ocean in the air

We can hear the seagulls overhead

And feel the breeze in our hair

It’s the best time of year by far

Especially when we’re at the beach

surrounded by our friends.

The Weather gets Hotter

In summer, the weather gets hotter,

But we still manage to have a lot of fun.

We go swimming and play in the sun,

And sometimes we stay up until nightfall.

There’s nothing better than a summer night,

When the air is warm and the stars are bright.

A Cold Drink

There’s nothing quite like a cold drink

to cool you down in the summer heat.

Pour yourself a fresh glass of iced tea,

or maybe a cold lemonade.

Whatever you choose, be sure to drink up

and enjoy the refreshing taste.

A Cold Drink on a Hot Day

There’s nothing like a cold drink on a hot day

To help you cool down and have some fun

Popsicles, smoothies, slushies, iced tea

There are so many choices, what’ll you have today?

My favourite is strawberry lemonade

With lots of ice and a slice of lemon on top

It’s the perfect drink to help beat the heat

So why not make one for yourself and enjoy!

The Flowers are in Bloom

Summer flowers are in bloom

The colours are so bright and gay

They make me feel so happy

I can’t wait for them to stay

I love the smell of the flowers

It’s such a sweet and special scent

It reminds me of Summertime

And all the fun that I’ll soon dent

I can’t wait to go outside

And sit in the sun’s warm rays

And admire all the pretty flowers

So let’s go outside and enjoy our days!

The Trees are so Green

The trees are so green

and the sky is so blue

Summer is such a beautiful time

of year

I love to sit in the shade

and watch the leaves sway

The trees are a peaceful sight

in the summertime.

Summer daisies,

Crowns of gold,

Watching over me,

Protecting from harm.

They grow wild,

A carpet of white,

Bringing happiness,

In the middle of summer.

At The Seaside

We’re at the seaside,

Watching the waves crash as we sit on the sand.

The sun is shining and it’s so hot,

But we don’t mind, because we’re on vacation!

We’re eating chips and drinking coke,

And playing in the water until we’re soaked.

Every night we go out to eat,

Then come back and watch the stars.

Bucket and Spade

I love the sound of the waves

Crashing against the shore

The salty air in my lungs

As I walk on the sand

With my bucket and spade

Building a castle that will never be

The sun is shining and the sky is blue

And I’m so happy I’m here with you.

  1. The long days in summer are my favorite part, having sun until late in the evening. Now, in May the sun goes down at 7:30 pm approximately which is pretty late and in July and August it will be even later. I love those days with long hours of day light 🙂
    These poems can get anyone excited about the summer, going to the beach, feeling the sun on your face, the gentle sea breeze, the salty air.
    I think you convinced me to go to the beach today (I live near the ocean) 🙂

    1. Hi Christine,

      I’m quite envious of you living so close to the ocean! Where I am it is at least a 2-hour drive away and the nearest beach has reputation for being very muddy rather than sandy.

      I still like to go there though, and some of the surrounding beaches are very picturesque and sandy! I also like to eat some fish and chips which is a thing if you go to the beach in the UK.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the poems.

      All the best,


  2. I like the sun one the best. Being out in the sun always puts me in a good mood. I think it’s because of the amount of Vitamin D that you get from the sun.

    1. Thank you, Garen.

      being out in the sun is great!

      The sun is always shining
      It seems to be a never-ending light
      It makes me happy just to see it
      Every day it puts me in a good mood
      I don’t know what I would do without it
      Out here in the sun.

  3. Hello Julia,
    Enjoyed these poems for kids. Summer is that time of the year we all love- kids and adults because it is a time of carefree fun and bonding.
    Each of these poems is lovely and could make a short bedtime discussion piece – depending on the family activities that day. Lovely!


    1. Hi Ceci,

      I love the idea of making a poem a short bedtime discussion piece.

      We chat about a poem,
      a favorite one that we share.
      It’s one that makes us smile
      and feel happy and loved.

      We giggle and chat,
      sharing what we like best.
      It’s a special moment
      before sleep comes to us.

      Thank you!
