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,
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.
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 pleasures,
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 once more.
