There's something so very pretty
About the warmth of summer days
Just sitting in the sunshine
Soaking up the rays

In the early morning coolness
Watching butterflies at play
Balmy breezes whispering
Secrets on their way

As soft sentimental shadows fall
Exploding starry light
Diamond studded darkness
A mantle of the night

Until the dawn unveils again
Flowers in the dew
Immersed within their fragrance
I smile, feelings of gratitude

For each petal there unfurling
Speaks of a wonder true
Unfolding special sweetness
The loveliness of you

I send my love on butterfly wings
To alight upon you my friend

Soft Whispers for you from
Derry's Heart Poems 2005

*Earth laughs in flowers*
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Where'er you walk
 cool gales shall fan the glade,
Trees where you sit
 shall crowd into a shade.
Where'er you tread
 the blushing flowers shall rise,
And all things flourish
 where you turn your eyes.
Alexander Pope Pastorals--Summer

All labors draw home at even,
And can to others say,
"Thanks to the gracious God of heaven,
Who sent this summer day."
Alexander Hume
