A Midsummer Night Melody

January 3, 2009
The rustle of turning leaves
Slices through the crisp summer breeze,
The blades of grass glisten
As the chalky moon light pours itself out,
My feet become stiff as I ease out onto the milky gravel,
The horizon remains undisturbed,
I feel your presence in the distance,
I long for the safety of your strong embrace
As I inhale and ponder the earth's reply,
But then the world seems right,
Your arms encase my childlike frame,
I spin around just in time to catch it,
That tiny gleam in those mysterious emeralds,
It promises forever,
I lean in close,
Your grasp becoming even more unbreakable,
You begin a quiet hum of the song we claim as ours,
We pull closer and dance for hours,
Although it seems only a moment,
Soon our song comes to a close,
Then summer begins its own symphony,
The thud of your heart matches perfectly
With the midsummer night melody
