Summer Eden

by Dawn Pisturino
site: http://www.dawnpisturino.wordpress.com

O, would the gaiety of summer last forever,

I would lie content in the summer sun,

Lazing away the hours in pleasant dreams,

Drifting, ever drifting, into nothingness;

And I would not weep for lost tomorrows

Or mourn the passing of yesterdays,

For blue skies are forever,

Timeless, changeless, infinite;

And I would not weep for the passing of love,

For love is a flighty thing,

Lofty and intangible,

And difficult to possess;

But give me a whole wide world of bright todays,

And I will be happy!

Give me the sun at my back

And the earth at my feet,

And I will not cry,

For these things are beautiful

And easy to touch.

Let me live my life in the Eden

Of God’s creation –

I will be content to die.

    hold the phone
    such a gas
    the time will pass
    in the laziness
    of idyll
