Summer Poems

Summer poems can be heavy like the heat, or as light and airy as a warm breeze.

"Musical sounds of birds
Sunbeams peak through window blinds
Warm breezes float about -
Another beautiful morn."

~ Evamay

You’ll find at least one memory and an “oh yes” in the words you read. Take your time to hear and feel the words of the season.
