Summer's Child

Summer's Child

A Poem by Susan Capozzi
"

Short little Summer time poem..

"





This Summer's child,
locks blowing wild,
waits nature's soft caress...
Sand squishing toes,
cool sprinkling hose,
pink flowered morning dress.

Red rosy cheeks,
sweet giggly squeaks...
hence, sailing wishful dreams.
Hands clasping tight,
fire twinkling light,
lush melting cocoa creams.

True secret spot,
now Camelot
Of playtime's to enchant...
clover-leafed crown,
patched, quilted gown,
whilst pond'ring gems to grant.

Nut buttered lips,
licked fingertips,
a threat'ning Bumble sting!
Branched climbing-trees,
bruised tender knees,
on flying wooden swing.

Oh take me back
when worries lack,
to Summer's long ago...
Each granted day's,
unique arrays...
my season's ~ all aglow.

makes me long for the carefree, innocent summers of my childhood. comforting write. nice flow - both wording and that swing ...

The feel of the poem seems antiquated and nostalgic; it reads like something written before the turn of the twentieth century. Many of my favorite writers are from that era including Emily Dickinson, Jack London, O'Henry, Mark Twain, Poe, Charles Dickens and others. The phraseology lends itself well to the nostalgic atmosphere of the piece. And the artwork is complementary to the poem.

Oh to be a child again, carefree, time told by the rumblings of an empty tummy. The rhyme and flow of this are bang on. Hats off to you Susan

LOL typo! Bumble sting!... not bubble
Lovely Susan, with a fun, peaceful visual presentation to match : )
I love how this poem zooms in on specific details and in doing so retains uniqueness along with a playful, lighthearted vibe. Every line was like a little vignette of perfection. My favorite stanza had to be the fourth one (Nut buttered lips / licked fingertips ...) I love how it captured the beautiful little moments one wouldn't typically think of. One wouldn't describe "bruised tender knees" as anything pleasing, but the way you've stated it sounds so playful and enjoyable.
As always, your rhymes, punctuation, and meter are on-point!
Thank you for sharing your talents with us : )
