come to mind -
when the summer comes round again.
Days of barefoot childhood,
when summer meant,
ice cream and watermelon,
swimming and castles made of sand.
that brought dreams,
of love and first kisses,
beach time fun and swimming among the waves.
brings with it great delights,
of summer nights.
skies filled with a million twinkling stars.
that disappear when the sun comes rising,
bringing with it dancing butterflies.
Of moonlight and hand holding,
wishing special things,
upon fluffy white clouds,
that go sailing by.
Warm breezes ,
the scent of flowers all about.
dreaming far into the night.
brings with it so much,
it all has a special touch.
Love begins anew,
no matter how long you’ve been together,
that summer moon -
will get you singing a new tune.
Long walks in silvery gardens,
and along a brightly, moonlit seashore.
that stays with you long after the summer is gone
and autumn leaves start to fall.
So enjoy it while you can,
let summer magic into your heart.
Never sleep away those summer nights,
they are just meant for two
and for sharing kisses -
far into the velvety night.
