Summer is Calling: A Poem

Updated on April 21, 2013
Source


Summer is calling,


I hear it whispering through the backyard trees,


The hammock slightly swaying in between,


The fictional characters calling my name from brand new books,


The waves reaching out from lonely beaches,


And the sun rays peeking around puffy white clouds.



Summer is calling,


I hear it sighing amongst the lingering days and starry nights,


The sipping lemonade on porch swings to and fro,


The warm concrete after sprinkler runs,


The weddings and babies and futile looks,


And the daydreams just waiting to be played as soon as I’m free.

      What a great line to finish your poem off with! Summer is calling, not here yet but it beckons. And isn't this how summer should be? Well before there were jobs and kids and ... Your poem brought longings and fondness of summer back so vividly. Thank you, Erin! Voted up and awesome!

      Good poem. A very slight melancholy note with the use of the word 'futile', I think?

      Your projection of your emotional feeling of bliss gave me great empathy of my summers as a child.

      Was a pleasure of thoughts.
