Summer Love Flies By

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Summer love as old as time,

with words as sweet as rhyme,

with passion ever strong -

summer love can’t go wrong.

Think it’s the moonlight

and you look so fine,

heart beating so fast -

I want this moment to last.

They danced beneath a golden moon,

while summer breezes blew

and flowers gave off sweet perfume -

their kisses like promises upon the summer wind.

Music was playing

and the moment was magical.

Stars were twinkling up above -

their passion sent skyrockets into the star-sprinkled night.

The summer nights such delight

and they were so in love,

their hearts beating as one,

in the moonlight.

Promises made of forever

and love never ending.

Kisses full of longing -

magic in the summertime.

Summers have always woven magic webs,

lovers have loved much stronger,

on hot and steamy nights,

with flowers sending sweet perfume.

It’s a never ending story,

that goes on and on,

embraces and kisses,

passion and promise.

Love goes on all summer long,

as the twilight sets in,

lovers walk hand in hand -

until autumn leaves begin to fall.

DREAM ON on October 06, 2017:

Even though the summer is over for this year. We will return again with love and fun in our hearts. Your words are beautiful. You have to close your eyes and see yourself in my eyes. Please enjoy all the good. The sad and the bad will pass. Feel free to e-mail me as often as you like. I had a lot of trouble when I lost my mother and later my brother. I will always think of them but I still have to move on and so do you. You have so many incredible talents put them to use it would be a very sad day to see them go to waste. Take care and Welcome Fall. I hear the wind whistling at my door. It sounded more like a bird call. Our cat Charlotte misses Sid. She has been a bad girl lately acting up. I don't have the heart to yell at her. I think she senses your unhappy and that makes Sid unhappy and that makes Charlotte a trouble maker. Have a good weekend.

Summer love what amazing feelings you expressed. I do love the summer but sometimes the sun and the heat get to me. You mentioned the perfect summer day where life only gets better and better.

It doesn't have to end when summer closes! Think of all those lovely intimate hours before a crackling fire. Love this poem.

Warm summer love makes the cold winter bearable.
