ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Summer is winding down, but there are still a few steamy days left. Soon the beaches will close along with public pools, but the memories made during the summer of 2019 will live on.
The grandeur of a summer day, the warmth of golden sun,
The birth emerging from the trees, new life has now begun,
Incomparable perception, upon the highest heights,
Of golden fields and new mown hay and other glorious sights,
Of unpolluted county sides, of azure heavenly skies,
A glimpse of full contentment, lays right before our eyes,
Of waters flowing here and there, of peace and solitude,
Of quiet walks and friendly talks, will change our attitude,
When summer comes again to us, our time may well be spent,
Our days dried up and bodies cold, our days of discontent,
But still we’ll live in splendor, of endless summer days,
When breath inspired by God Himself will set our souls ablaze.
