One More Summer
by Alan  Balter

Sunsets melted into a palette of pastels
At a summer place I came to know so well
Nestled onshore by a cool and pristine lake
Where seagulls swooped for silver fish to take

Long walks on a soft sand beach
White breakers crashing within reach
The sun warming my back and face
How I grew to love that summer place

I?d gather wildflowers growing free
Beneath a gnarly black oak tree
Then climb a stretch of rolling hills
Still dotted by some old saw mills

A sweet smelling girl with sun dyed hair
Maggie and me had our love affair
With greens and violets streaking the night sky
Still I wonder why we said good-bye

If only I could return to that fine time
When everything near me seemed to rhyme
How joyous it would be again
For one more summer way back then
