The Summer Pledge



The Summer Pledge


Come walk with me this fragrant summer day,

We’ll wind our way to where the water gleams,

Where gentle winds in wistful willows play

And Love's cup holds the elixir of our dreams.


We’ll weave paths through a milky thistle maze

And amble on an alder avenue,

Then watch the sun’s bronze blaze raise

Through river mist his rainbow retinue.


And when his shafts of silken light will lance

The lofty boughs that court mid morning’s haze,

He’ll smile to see his sunbeams’ dappled dance

On joyful faces gilded by his rays.


Close by the honeysuckle crested hedge,

Where bitter blackthorn’s vicious fingers thread,

I’ll turn to read your eyes and hear your pledge

Windward whispered on lips of cherry red.


And as the blithe and languid meadow grass

With swaying grace plays host to consummation,

 we’ll know before this fateful day  shall pass

Our lives entwined will build on Love's foundation.
