With spring just getting started
My mind sometimes jumps ahead
To the joys of the summer
With its beauties all wide spread.

When strong winds have left my valley
As warm breezes take their place,
And the rains have turned to showers
That refresh my eager face

And flower gardens are competing with
A riotous bright bloom
As the yard of every home serves as
An outdoor living room

From the dew drops of the morning
To the fair skies of the day.
I wish the delights of summer
Would not ever go away.

Whether playing golf or fishing
Or lying on a sun drenched beach
Summer is as tantalizing
As taste of a fresh picked peach.

But since I canít coax summer
To stay for more than ninety days,
I will have a fling with springtime
And her bold coquettish ways.

Another most beautiful poetic offering from you, dear Joyce.

You charm Summer into being with your words!

A lovely ode to those "lazy, crazy days of summer".

The seasons all have their pleasures, but none unfurl the sun's graces quite like summer and no summer has ever been graced in finer form than with your poetry.

...just bein' Bluesy
