Summer’s Grace

Dusk descends upon us,

Relief from the heat of the day,

We’re drawn to the wooden boardwalk,

Where flowery fragrance fills the air,

Hidden creatures chirp their mating songs,

And svelte swans grace the lawn.

Away from the raucous festivities,

Warm bodies, pulsing music, and stilted small talk,

Into the cool, calm quiet.

Rare is our solitude, rare is the perfect June night.

    Beautiful, Jolyse! Didn’t know you were a poet, my multi-talented friend!

    1. Thanks, Marcia. You should read my children’s poetry–all about the potty humor. LOL. Seriously, I dabble in poetry whereas I toil over my prose, my true love when it comes to writing.
