When Summer Walked Into My Garden

My garden had
A different look
When summer
Opened her book
On all things that
Had to be done
Arriving early with
Morning sun.

In she waltzed
Smiling wide
With roses and
Irises side by side.

Robins stayed to sing
With beautiful butterflies
Prancing with painted wings.
Hostas curled, left
Over from spring.

Summer smiled, moving
Between magnolia trees and
Dogwoods pink
Waving in her gentle breeze.

My garden sings in
Summer delight,
Yellow primrose open
Just at twilight.

Summer joys in my garden
Do play
I give thanks for the pleasures
Of summer days.

In Summer

Spring, it is said
Is the season for lovers
But for you and for me
The season is summer

In a sweet-smelling field
On a bright summer’s morning
We shall meet, you and I
And the sun will be warming

And though the day will grow hot
We can lie in the shade
On the cool bank of a river
Wishing that summer not fade

In evening, by twilight
We shall walk through the trees
And together we’ll sing
Of the soft summer breeze

And we shall dance in the night
Our feet bared to the dark
We’ll leap and we’ll whirl
Until we must part

And so we shall go
Regretting to sleep
For dawn again will return
Though slowly, so slowly it comes

Spring it is said
Is the season for lovers
Though for us
It will always be summer

Swallows in the summertime

Swallows in the summertime

The swallows have returned again,
Reminding me of those halcyon days of my youth,
Many years have passed since those blissful days,
I would spend many happy evenings watch them dart around.

The swallows always return each summer,
Spreading their joyful wings over England's green and pleasant land,
Every summer I wonder how many more times will I see the return,
Although it's summer again, I ‘am approaching the winter of my life.

When the swallows return again next year again,
I wonder if I will still be here to see them again,
Flying on the wing under the clear blue skies of summer,
If I ‘am, I will sit by the babbling brook and watch their dance once more.

If I see the swallows return once more,
I will remember those summer days of long ago,
When I was a lad and the countryside seemed to go on forever,
And in my mind I will be young again.

Another Summer

Sitting on the edge
of the concrete path
The grains digging into my skin

Sitting on the edge
of the life I’ve got to live
Should I even try


A small smile on my lips
staring into the distance
A horizon I need to face
how swiftly it’s coming closer

Always planning for the future
not taking a present step
Dreaming dreams out of the future
where people see me clearly

I’m no longer the silent girl
Maybe next summer
I’m awake, you approach me
Maybe next summer

In another life
I would talk to you
In another world
I could risk it

Just wait another day
I won’t hold out for long
Just wait a little while
I’ll change before your eyes
Be here next summer
and I will come to you
Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)
