Treasure Island

Valerie Dohren

(13 January 1947 / Southport)

Summer Comes


Summer comes
splendid in its coming -

bringing to maturity
the promises of Spring.

Summer comes
with the aching wantonness of fertility
and fulfilment

the ripening of moist fruit
soon to harvest

and the pregnancy of
virgin soil.

Summer comes -
eager to bring forth new life.

When Mars conjoins with Venus …..

Summer comes.

    A wonderful poem Val. Unfortunately here in Texas there is no virgin soil. It is very promiscuous. Lol. Yes winter seems to be over here. We are already in the eighties. God bless. (Report) Reply

    Ah! Valerie, your English Sun is coming in his chariot soon
    And our Indian Sun is going to charge against us later with no hopes left.
    Your summer is your pride and our envy. (Report) Reply
