Somewhere Summer

Somewhere dewy daybreak blushes
Spills to gardens rainbow-spun
Somewhere velvet vesper hushes
Barefoot banter, sleepy sun

Somewhere hills are decked with daisy
Woodlands sire wanderlust
Somewhere afternoon wilts, hazy
Glazed with silt of harvest-dust

Somewhere raindrops melt in mirrors
Luring lads to more than look
Somewhere green is earth's prime color
Sculpts the bank that cups the brook

Somewhere destiny delivers
Somewhere blossom-beauty grins
Somewhere midnight’s homage quivers
From mist-silver violins

Somewhere boyish breezes murmur
Turquoise sea-song strums white sand
Somewhere, somewhere soul-sweet summer
Deftly drains time’s dextrous hand

Winter wails but not forever
Day by day its gales unchain
Fond fairways for sweet, sweet summer
To find Her way here again

    1. :) Hi Jen and thank-you:) I suddenly had the need to drain some summer-hunger from my bones!

  2. Very beautiful and so tranquil. Lovely pictures too

    1. thank-you...makes me a little homesick for summer though there is so much to truly love in every season!
