A Summertime Couplet

This summer morn I silently slip very close to shore,
With every paddle pull I'm drawn to many years before.

    Hi Craig- Love summer-- love couplets--love this one. Please educate this 'blonde' poet again :) Are couplets generally just two lines or can poems have a couple of couplets?

    Ow gee i love the feeling you transmitted so much ..maybe because i can relate to it.There is a particular beach on the island ,and everytime i stroll along that leaves sweet sad nostalgia of many years before-Charma

    I love the interplay of this melancholy poem!! It makes one long for summers of the past, during a summer of the present.....why do memories of summer always seen sweeter than those of winter?
