The way you came

"The summer has come"

"The  summer?  It is the spring now"

"Yes I know,  but for me it is summer"

 "Why?" she  asked giggling

"When you are beside me, 
The world is very colourful, 
The cuckoo sweetly sings,    
The flowers blooms in many colours, 
You have come to my winter,
With your spring and summer,
You filled my heart with flames of love,
I hear nothing but  your sweet melody,
My heart was once laden with melancholy,
They all are evaporated  
With your warmth,
I can embrace and hide inside you,
But I have to leave very soon,
I may not return, my time is up.
Then whom will you warm?"

" There will be many
Come for my warmth
The way you came to this geisha girl"

    I am not sure the form but I did enjoy reading. Is the Geisha calling the man spring and summer or is it the other way around??

    My feeling is that it is the female voice building the mans ego.
