Entranced by Her Beauty

She was his favorite

She came once a year

Filling his life with great beauty and delight

She came quietly

Without any pomp and circumstance

Slowly evolving

As the days became warmer

And the sun hotter

With her she bought

Flowers in wondrous colors

And everything became lush and green

He loved her best walking along country roads

Beneath a sky of deep blue

Followed by fluffy, white clouds

Making his heart full of joy

Walking in a forest

Where the sun played with the shade

Where tall pines wafted their scent into the hot air

Beside rivers that flowed

Reflecting tiny sparkling diamonds

Upon the ripples of water

Glowing in rainbow colors

Beneath the sun

All this and so much more

She brought every year

He ached for her all through the fall and winter

When the world was frozen

In majestic splendor

His anticipation growing when spring came round

Knowing that soon she’d be here

Bringing her magic with her

Then came the dew filled mornings

And like magic spider webs would appear

And dew drops would glisten upon the grass

Upon the flowers

Making it all seem like a fantasy

There was never a time

When he couldn’t discover something new

Which she had brought with her

Making him smile

However all the delights and pleasure

Seemed to go by

Much too fast

And so he fully experienced each day

Freezing the special moments in photographs

Which he enjoyed looking at

When snowflakes fell outside his window

He loved being with her

On sun filled beaches

Feeling the hot sand beneath his feet

Jumping among the waves in the sea

As the water sparkled all around him

He loved her just as simple as that

And was always filled with joy

Each time summer came to visit again

A lovely poem to extol the beauties of summer. I love the way God has made the seasons come around, each with their special delights. It's winter here, so thanks for the reminder that summer will return.

Gypsy, we always seem to be on the same wave-length...the words from the evocative 'Some kind of a Summer' describes the poem I'm trying to write exactly. Your words images and music lifts the mood, beautifully done.

Oh, summer is surely the most lovable season.

But so are spring and autumn.

Poor winter is the black sheep in the family. And yet, with such beauty of its own.

Beautiful, Gypsy!

Beautiful pictures!

You my poet displayed here all the sensitivities of summers arrival and its absence on a heavy heart. I love the arrival of summer, it's arrived here on the Canadian Prairies. Your imagery was very much felt and seen, thank you for this artistic share my dear. Happy summer to you and yours.
