Sangria sun sinks in the sea
  as twilight claims the day;
the sea gulls soar above the key,
  and stars come out to play.

The ocean breeze is blowing soft
  as evening fills the sky
with puffy clouds that float aloft 
  while gently drifting by.

Along the shore the lovers swoon
  while strolling hand in hand;
in eastern sky a lover’s moon
  glows gently on the land.

A summer’s eve the perfect time
  for new romance to start; 
with stars above the night is prime
  to claim a person’s heart.
