The veil of evening fades from the lands,
To welcome the first of Summer’s Light.
From the east She rises, with ignited strands,
A treasured gift that’s warm and bright.
Into the valleys, and across the streams,
She embraces our land with Her glow.
An illuminated beauty, beyond our dreams,
Breathes life into the world we know.
We gaze in wonder, as Her light burns grand,
Pouring upon us Her essence of gold.
Or beloved Summer, together we stand,
To watch the gifts of life unfold.
At seasons end, we must part ways,
For now in other lands must you dwell.
Your brilliant light dims to a subtle haze,
Until our paths may cross again, farewell. . .
