With the arrival of the summer solstice, everyone’s favorite season begins. In celebration, here is a roundup of poems for all ages that sing the praises of warm weather, long days, and no school!

Apples 4 the Teacher: Poems and Rhymes About Summer Fun
As part of their summer fare, Apples 4 the Teacher features famous poets such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry W. Longfellow, and Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr. For craft ideas, summer coloring pages, short stories, thematic reading lists, and summer facts follow the breadcrumb menu (at the top of the page) to Summer Fun. “Summer is the warmest season of the year when the sun shines directly on one half of the world. Summer in the Northern Hemisphere begins about June 21st – the date of the summer solstice. It ends about September 23, the date of the autumnal equinox.”

Black Cat Poems: Summer
“Let the CAT inspire you!” Black Cat Poems is an archive of poems categorized by subject and poet. Their collection includes poets from long ago, as well as submissions from readers. The summer page of fifty-four poems, includes “Midsummer Morn” by Clara Marcelle Farrar Greene. “A wondrous blue of summer sky, / A dream of fair, sweet weather; / A floating cloud-band airily / Joined hand in hand together.”

DLTK: Summer Poems, Rhymes and Songs
DLTK highlights poets from “from various eras — some easier, some harder” and summer songs such as “Baby Bumblebee.” “I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee, / Won’t my mommy be so proud of me, I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee, Ouch! It stung me!” Many of the summer poems, nursery rhymes and songs are accompanied by related coloring pages and craft projects. For example, the bumblebee song page include nine craft projects and links to related rhymes such as “Five Busy Honey Bees.”
