By The River In Summer Long Ago. - Poem by Margery Rehman

Hot, long lazy days
Sun dazed dragonflies skimming
Light filters through leaves
We swim among the lilies
Dreaming of the perfect love.

    Swimming among lilies? Sounds idyllic. What a picture you have created. But then, I do like your poetry anyway. A soothing read for me, Margery.

    Love, Fran xx
