Sitting under the trees on a hill overlooking the bay,
a light breeze swaying the branches above.
Sail boats glistening in the sun
as the wake of passing boats cause them to bob up and down
and The Garden State Symphonic Band entertains the crowd
with music of the movies.

We were entertained with selections from Breakfast At Tiffany's, A Star Is Born, Rocky, and Moon Struck, to name a few, along with vocal performances by Paula Johns who sounded so much like Ella Fitzgerald. Next Sunday...music from “LaBoheme” and “Beauty and the Beast.” I hope I can get there and celebrate this side of summer.

|Out in the bay|
|A sharp chapeau|
|Clothes pins do the trick as the breeze kicks up.|
|Paula Johns sings Moon River.|
|Instruments shine in the bright sun.|
|And the beat of summer goes on.|
