Alone I'm sitting near my blanket with a picnic basket close by,
And reminiscing of family outings by the lake and softly sigh.
Memories of happy summer days filling baskets at break of dawn,
Those days of family gatherings that now have long since gone.
Summer meant a picnic at a nearby lake on a warm and sunny day
Before the lush green grass and leaves on trees soon fade away.
As I sit here in my chair watching sailboats cruising on the lake
I daydream of past family picnic outings half asleep and yet awake.
Yes, those sweet memories of a long ago happy summer day
Lives on forever in my mind and hopefully never fades away.

That's actually the Hudson River and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge in the background. The photo was taken with a cellphone and is a little blurry, I'm not sure who took the photo. Many of the younger family members went on a hike when the photo was taken. Until the next time my friends, have a day of blessings. 💜
