Oh, Sun, you may have overdone it a bit this summer.
But not all of us minded!
Please keep the warmth flowing into the fall.
I am a grey and white stone, at one with the other stones.
We soak in the rays of the late summer sun.
Nothing beats a buttery sun puddle on a crisp autumn day.
Yes, I’m magnificent.
Feel free to call me Sun King.
Sunbathing is not only for the summer months.
Vitamin-D is important at all times of the year.
When it’s cold, we Turtles burrow in.
If a warm spell strikes, we reamerge to bask in the unseasonable heat.
Nothing, not even blood worms, tastes as good as Vitamin-D feels.
–Princess Maple Ann
Oh, Sun, you feel so good on our fur!
We’ll miss you when winter comes.
–Stella and Cosmo
Peekaboo, annoyingly bright morning sun. I see you.
Now I don’t and that’s much better.
Fancy mattresses are nice, but nothing beats a rough stone pathway, warmed by the midday sun.
–Phelps and Quicksilver
