Summer Home

I tried not to drag out

The long sweet good bye.

I simply gazed upon you

Shining so bright and alive.

~

So farewell for now

My dear sweet place

Where all of these months

You have been my solid base.

~

I leave you in colors

Bright with crimson and gold

Soon they too will flee

Crumbling and crinkly, gone and old.

~

I know you will stand here solidly

All through the winter long

And when I return

I will bring with me a new song.

~

A song of love

Of generosity and light

A song to sing aloud

through the changing season’s light.

I Miss You Golden Shores

The light, the air

Golden ray of sunshine

Still I left and ran fast

Searching for what was mine

~

A golden oak, splashing sea

The greenest of the green

Melting in my mind

That long-lost childhood scene

~

That golden land of promise

She whispers out my name

Hearing it from another shore

Missing her all the same

~

A soft breeze

Cooling, too much warmth

The sun she radiates to me

Singing to me, calling me forth.

~

Land of big dreams

Of  light, of love, and of loss

Back-forth, up-down,

Throw my heart back with a toss.
