Summer’s Field (poem)

We spent our days in summer’s field

Where promises were flower’s yield

And nothing was from us concealed

This season put aside for two


Each breeze would call me to your side

To touch the dreams that hearts confide

And let our kisses be our guide

Through summer’s field where wishes grew


We’d find delight in holding tight

Such flights would summer’s field ignite

That nothing quite would feel so right

Until those youthful days were through


Then seasons of cold winters came

With biting winds so hard to tame

We fought to guard our precious flame

Through mornings filled with bitter dew


Then in your eyes came yesterday

Though outer youth had gone astray

Were summer’s field that far away

For love whose blossom had proved true

Summer loves are hard, but when they endure it's a beautiful thing.

Young love, a whiff of Jasmine on the breeze and the long hot Summer days and nights..... Yes I revisit often, a time when we could almost fly. Thank you for taking me there.
