A Summer Love



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 full moon

While summer breezes blew

And flowers gave off sweet perfume

Their kisses like promises in the night


Music was playing

And the moment was magical

Stars were twinkling up above

And their passion sent skyrockets into flight


The summer night such a delight

And they were so in love

Their hearts beating as one

Under the moonlight


Promises made of forever

And love never ending

Kisses full of longing

Magic in the summertime


Summers have always woven magic webs

And lovers have loved much stronger

On hot and steamy nights

In the moonlight


It’s a never ending story

That goes on and on

Embraces and kisses

And passion and promise


Love goes on all summer long

As the twilght sets in

And lovers walk hand in hand

Until autumn leaves begin to fall

The stirred up memories are still swirling. How many of those summer loves last? There are some ("married her high school sweetheart") but so often it is a memorable summer, which didn't repeat itself but cooled as the leaves of fall fell, and died with the snows of winters.

That was all it took. The memories have settled back to where they were.

Hi, I see my Hub about my growing up in the country (that's my baby Great granddaughter) is a "people are also reading". That was a surprise.

I loved this sweet poem. My first love was a summer love, and I still remember how wonderful it was. I voted this up, and will share.

Gypsy, a fine poem. Takes me back to summers when I was younger. I also remember the many films centered around summer love - remember Grease and The Summer of 42? Now I'm showing my age. I also liked your choice of music - I have always loved Michael Bolton. The many really can sing a great love song.

A lovely poem--- so many of us remembers our summer loves. I was 13 when I had my first summer love---but we only held hands as our parents were watching us every minute at the lake.

Thanks for sharing this great poem.

This poem, good as it is, got mileage from being timely and recounting ubiquitous feelings that resonate with us all...even those who learned devouring by practicing on watermelons!

Sweet summer love with the not so sweet ending at the close of the season. But it's all worth the heartache in the end right? Right?! Yes, it is. Because I do believe in the saying that it's better to have loved and lost than it is to have never loved at all. Great poem Gypsy

Gypsy Rose Lee 4 years ago from Riga, Latvia Author

Thanks so much for your comment Ardie and glad you liked this. Yes, experiencing a summer love is much better than not having had one at all.

nothing more beautiful than summer love.. your poem.. as beautiful as always


Vincent Moore 4 years ago

I felt your summer love as I chomped into my watermelon I just bought yesterday and placed in my fridge to get nice and crispy cold before I cut into it. I've had a few summer loves in my time and they were sizzling hot. I have a lot of memories to hang on to and wash it down with my watermelon wine. Voted up awesome and beautiful like your my poetic friend.
