Hammock Hijinks

A hammock swings with gentle sway,
I try to sit without delay.
But as I plop, it flips me out,
With tangled limbs, I flop about.

I try again with careful grace,
One leg in, a funny face.
The hammock rocks, I hold on tight,
But soon I'm spinning, what a sight!

Friends all laugh, it's quite a show,
As I attempt another go.
Hammock hijinks, summer's game,
Getting in is never tame.

But grains of gold still take flight.
In shoes, in hair, it makes its home,
In every nook, sand loves to roam.

For summer fun is truly here.
