Here's to Summer

Gentle yet vivid
Waves of realization
Split the blue-gold tinted day
As summer drifts
Though umber limbs
Away, away

Fix me a Long Island iced tea
With an extra slice of lime
I sense an insidious mock in the breeze
It rattles the tinny wind-chime

Gentle, yet vivid
Autumn’s preludes
Tremble upon the tip
Of summer’s hour
Softly dwindling
In Time’s bravest grip

Fix me another Long Island iced tea
We’ll toast the summer-time
Thank-you waiter for making it three
Just in the nick of lime
