Lazy Summer Days

The sweet smell of cut grass clings to my back

Where Four leaf clover grows beside the track

The oxeye daisy said he loves me lots

We kissed in the mist, midst forget-me-knots


The fingers of summer caressed my face

With long lazy days, there's no need for haste

The morning dew drops on a blade of grass

Traps the rainbow and sparkles like cut glass


Honeysuckle, jasmine, and rose perfume

Pervades the air from each perfect bloom

The blackbirds are busy flapping their wings

Fetching and carrying food for fledglings


Bees busy making honey for the queen

In the meadow of red yellow and green

Wildflowers swaying untamed in the breeze

Releasing pollen for bees and for sneeze


Cherries and berries, sweet apples, and pears

Harvest of plenty divided into shares

Some for the birds, for the wasp, and the ants

The rest, for me to make jam with my aunts


Far in the distance happy voices ring

Children sing songs about an ancient king

The dog chased a lizard into the pond

Dragonflies hovered and fluttered around


Those lazy summer days end much too soon

Birds heading South by the light of the moon

They seek the sun, but one day they'll return

To long summer days for which the heart yearns

Forget-me-not

Voronwe, you are so right, it doesn't matter how far we run from nature, we always some how return to it. I think this is because we are link, we are part of nature, can't run away from your self. Many thanks for the visit and insightful comment.

Great poem and pictures! Nature never fails to astound us. We can always sense that there is something far more greater than us humans and its mainly because of Nature and its immense presence around us. It always manages to arouse strange instincts and conscious levels.

To business, thanks for this! I spent most of my childhood down at eye level with plants or up in trees with birds. This really took me back to that happy place! Up and beautiful!

Unknown Spy, I'm so glad you enjoyed this.

We take so much for granted, nature is wonderful but it won't always be as we remember it.

It's good to look back, even with rose coloured specks.
