August Moon


August moon echos of kattiedids and
the aroma of the lake that summer not
any special aroma, but somehow that
will always be in my heart along with
the first kiss the evening had instore

Hot summer days, and summer nights
with all the myterious wonders that
lied ahead of my life each one of them
has left its impact on me till this very day

Being young, and turning into a young lady
from a tom boy certainly had its adjustments
in store for me

Remembering how to dive, wear lipstick, and
falling in love all in one summer's august moon

    Is this the complete story of 'August Moon'.....or......are you perhaps a wee bit selective in what you choose to share? Whatever...... An excellent poem indeed. (Report) Reply
