Green to swim and roll in
to tickle face and feet
to smile in
Sweet breeze to bathe and breathe in
to wave arms and to sigh in
Smooth lake to drift and dance in
Soft cotton to wrap in
Gentle arms to nap in
Originally called "Early Summer Holiday," I took the "Early" off in honor of August. I wrote this as a young, single woman, dreaming about the ultimate summer day -- shared with some amazing man who had yet to arrive on the scene...
God answered my prayers in my husband of 23 years. Back in the day when my man had his acoustic guitar out daily (he's a trumpet player now), we put these words to music.
It's been such a busy summer. Lots of DIY projects and tasks. How about you? I just had to post a little reminder that summer (and time with our loved ones) is to be savored.
