The Summer Wind
The summer wind came blowin’ in, across the sea!
It lingered there to touch your hair, and walk with me!
All summer long we sang a song, and strolled the golden sand,
Two sweethearts and the summer wind!
Like painted kites, the days and nights, went flyin’ by,
The world was new, beneath the blue umbrella sky!
And softer than a piper man, one day called to you,
I lost you to the summer wind!
Now I’m alone, I might have known, but who can guess?
I’d hear a sound, and turn around to emptiness!
I run to see, who can it be, that laughter on the stair?
But who is there?
The summer wind!
