Summer

Summer

A summer situation
         and love
such a sensible surprise
         strawberries on a plate
roses in a vase
         a table laden
with welcome guests
         amid air that circulates
lung to lung

Sweet summer
         palpable sensation
risen temperatures
          and an eye  
calibrated for beauty :
         dainty black slippers
and white lace
          A day less weary
hair winnowed
         in the nightbreeze
Moonlight streams through
         open windows
gilds the silver spoons
          A stroll in the park
is never an accident
