Summer Fairytale

What golden pink and lovely skies

do sunsets make before my eyes?

What lush of green that smells so fresh

is drifting in through doors of mesh?

What barbecue or campfire smoke

is swirling ‘round the happy folk?

What gardens grow and give their yield

from the tiny patch to massive fields?

What cool of night and what full of moon

comes too late and then leaves too soon?

This season is as it has always been,

from now back to the dawn of then.

What springs to life before the fall,

if not summer as fairest of them all?
