Best Valerie Bellefleur Poems

+ Fav Poet


Summer wraps her soft arms about me,
like the caress of a silken shawl
with the sweetest breath,
she blows the rose petals at my feet,
and sends the yellow and white butterflies
to dance before my eyes..

She fills my senses with fresh mown hay,
and beckons the scent of honeysuckle
in teasing breezes that play in my hair..
she brings forth the sunflower maids,
who bob in the hot winds of an August afternoon..

She paints the sky in perpetual blue, and
dresses the evening clouds in gowns of
crimson and giddy pinks,
while turning down the lavendar quilt of sunset,
she bids a sleepy sun goodnight...

    This is so beautiful, makes me wish for a summer just like you've described!! Our summer at the moment, is wrapping a shawl of HOT around us this week.....rather than the silken shawl!! :( Hopefully we will feel the teasing breezes soon! :) lol~ Carrie
