1. Ballad of the Summer Months (or Ballad of Some Other Months)

Longer days and warmer nights;

Adrenalin and dizzy heights;

Black tulips and slower strolls…

He said he’d be back when summer came.

 

The air buzzes with quartzy flies,

My mind glides back to deep, gauzy eyes;

Black tulips where smoky sunlight rolls…

He said he’d be back when summer came.

 

Daydream skies and simple ecstasy;

Blackfeather birds hop right next to me,

But I’m still lonely for June is prodigal…

He said he’d be back and we’d share the sun.

 

Tanned lips curve to a subtle smile,

A gaze that penetrates a mile;

I’m still lonely when the water seems madrigal…

He said he’d be back and we’d share the sun.

 

Mascara reefs on a pallid ocean;

A torrent in my the heart, the notion

That he’s coming back to lift my doubt…

He said he’d be back, will he be back?

 

Dull moonlight cools my tender skin,

My soul pines for joy, for romance, for sin;

That he’s coming: I’m still not devout…

He said he’d be back, will he be back?

 

Happiness is love on a summer’s day,

Unless your love is still away,

Irony hurts as hard as it sounds…

He said he’d be back, he said that he’d stay.

 

The joy to be alive should reach

My heart and summer’s bliss should teach,

But irony hurts and loneliness grounds

The electricity of delight,

The fire that should burn through warmer nights,

The living air that should ignite,

The feeling of make-everything-all-right,

The sun that helps almost everyone’s plight,

But love’s ache still wins the fight,

He said he’d be back when summer came.
