You Had Me At Hello




Summer...
You had me at hello

You swept me up in your intensity


And the crazy-hatted party goers
you brought to my garden


You arrived dressed in eye-popping colours


Against a backdrop of glorious greens


With the summer comes the sun
And with the sun comes the heat


June, July and August whizzed by
in a colourful, shimmering mirage


Trumpets blared sweet summer's song
filling my senses with their heady perfume


While the fish grew fat and happy
in the pond


So many moments to enjoy


So much beauty to drink in


Some scenes almost too beautiful to believe


That this is reality and not just a dream


In my garden, summer has been gentle,


Fluttery


Feminine


Fringed


Filled with colourful hues,


Stately colour shapes


And bold colour wows!



Autumn is on its way
and when I look back


This will have been a Summer
I will never forget!
