Come child
The sweet wonder is before you
Careful to pluck
The cotton flower
Don’t spill a drop
And hold it up.
Make a wish,
Anything your heart desires
Take a breathe
the air of innocence,
Close your eyes and blow.
See the tiny seeds
As they travel like
Parachutes on the wind,
When they land
They shall make fields of golden flowers
To match your pretty hair.
Almost gone,
Here take my hand
Let’s find more
Wishes in the meadow,
To set free
Of their grassy bindings
Pull them all up,
Innocent thoughts
For fields and not lawns
Says Uncle
Who does not like weeds
In the manicured area
Of his yard.
I say more dandies for the bees.

Summer fun musical interlude

Found this photo on Bing and figured what better way to pay homage than put the old iTunes on shuffle and the first few songs, grab some lyrics, mash them together and put musical lyrics to the photo. Hope you enjoy my, ummmm…awesome taste in music.

End of the spring and here she comes back
Hi, hi, hi, hi there
Them summer days, those summer days.

I’ve been dreamin’
Of the things I learned
About a boy who’s leavin’
Nothing else to chance again
You’ve got to let me in or let me out.

It’s warm outside, no clouds are in the sky
But I need myself place to go and hide
I keep it to myself, I don’t want nobody else
To see me cryin’ all those tears in my eyes.

Friday night, it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate and I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right
Now as the years roll on
Each time we hear our favorite song
The memories come along
Older times we’re missing
Spending the hours reminiscing.

Suddenly we’re strangers, I watch you walking away.
She was my one temptation, oh, I did not want her to stay.
Deep down, I’m still confused about you.
I feel so in love, oh, baby, what can I do ?

She flits about
Touching down lightly
Flower petals
Barely move
With the landing.
Butterfly fly away and
Back again
Caught on the breeze
She dances around
A spectacle to see.
On my shoulder
Her presence kissed
This moment of magic
I hold so still,
Stay my beauty
Do not touch the fragile wings of color
Do not lay waste to her
Her essence.
Dance on air
Swept away
No longer there.
