Golden fields and purple heather,
Sun-dappled ferns of acid green.
A cicada's song and salty skin.
Cool waters, crashing waves,
Hot sand and long days.
Languid lakes and sluggish streams,
A summer breeze and turquoise sea.
A birthday smile, a summer sun,
Summer hues and summer scents,
A catalogue of sunlit days,
Of fun with friends and summer haze.
The quiet of an afternoon, of candlelight and silver moon.
A full glass, an empty head,
