A Summer Storm

Love's an emotion that is known to all Since the very first day we are born The degree of love and intense infatuation Can be just like a summer storm From a gentle shower to a thunderous roar It exhibits the power of the rain The depth of love can be similar in intensity Can be powerful or a simple refrain A feeling that lives down deep in our soul Like nothing that we've ever felt It can often leave us weak and trembling Slurring our words as we melt Nothing else in our multitude of emotions Can even come close to this joy Like the day our child takes their first step Or young love between girl and boy As time marches on, many things diminish In intensity, in depth, in passion But one thing that will always remain Love will never go out of fashion Love's an emotion that is known to all Basic since the day we are born The degree of love and intense infatuation Can be just like a summer storm © Jack Ellison 2013

    We have a problem, every critter I see live, I adopt! Can't help myself! My garage mice got a condo made in my rose garden. That should keep Dragon from the roses... LOL... I ask Mike and de Trolls to bring dinner home... They got peckers and cluckers... But they weren't depecked and declucked and defeathered before I got them and became adopted... I think my guys minds were out floating in de raft again! I put my new friends de new cluck house. Sent de guys out for sandwiches and cluck food.
