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
