The Sum of Summer

The Sum of Summer

The sum of summer
Is one billion bees
And six trillion leaves
On three billion trees
And four fillion flies
And five sillion fleas
And uncounted numbers
Of sweet memories.

~ Douglas Florian,

Is this a fun poem, or what? :)  I love the rhymes, the nonsense words, and the images.  Bugs, trees, memories -- yep, sounds like summer!
