Midsummer Moments

In canoe we float;
We pass by the grassy knolls -
Gently rocks the boat.

Muted shades of green…
A backdrop for your splendor,
Butterfly is seen.

Amidst purple hues
He flutters on fragrant breeze…

A fork in the bend
Like a languid, blue highway;
Exit to Eden.

By the stream, we walk…
Midsummer’s day a delight;
Of nothing we talk.

Holding hands, we kiss;
This one moment we’ll hold dear…
Happiness is bliss.

Eve is drawing nigh;
Back to the canoe we go -
Twilight paints the sky.

In canoe we float;
Pass again the grassy knolls -
Gently rocks the boat.
