Treasure Island

David Whalen

(5/18/38 / Covington Kentucky)

Soft Summer Night

It's a blanket that wraps
the world within
It's a hug from Mother Nature
It's a silken touch upon one's skin…
It's a soft Summer night!

It's starry skies and warm breezes
It's hide and seek and skinned up knees
It's poison ivy and Ragweed sneezes
It's the whispers of Angels amongst the trees
It's a soft Summer night

It's July fourth fireworks
At the Village Square
It's the odor of clover
Saturating the air
It's a soft Summer night

Springtime has it's promise
Bittersweet endings has the Fall
Winter a time of deep reflection
But Summer surpasses them all

With it's gentle, silken, Caring caress
It's Angelic whispers in full moonlight
It's a God given grace…no more…no less
…It's a soft Summer night…

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
