Fairies drift aimlessly by,
Butterflies, flutter by,
Bees clambering over buttercups,
Daisy chains and dandelions,
A penny tossed in the wishing well for lady luck.

A beautifully floaty summer dress,
Open air sonnets, an ale shared in the shade of a tree,
Sandwiches of salmon and watercress,
Conversations of……Oh! ….”Just this and that”,
Broad smile from under the wide brim of a linen hat,
All for the company of two, who, just want to be.

Present and past, memories of summer,
Memories for just one’s self, or maybe,
A future, one and another.
Pleasant things we don’t let go,
Memories made to last through the years,
Through the disappointments, through the tears,
The months of biting wind and winter snow!
