Summer's Rhapsody

Paint me on your canvas of rosy dawn, dewy scarlet daisy blooms in soft hues, your cherry-dipped fingers dwelling upon, crimson cool honey dripping to heart's muse. Drench my soul in your ethereal touch, Inhaling your musk with lazy noon mush, dancing to whispers of orchards you clutch, tendrils in vineyard of my cocooned blush. Sing me a rhapsody of clouds in white, lilac summer holding onto spring breeze, my hair tickle your glances at twilight, velvet breaths fuse in woods with rustling trees. Silver crescents blaze moonlit pearls my love, lulled in silks of tranquil stars from above.

Written as exquisitely as the Old Masters - Coleridge and Shakespeare to name but two. Wordsworth and Thoreau if you need four of them. Well done.

What a luscious sonnet of a dreamy summer day! Some excellent summertime nature imagery (rosy dawn, daisy blooms, whispers of orchards, spring breeze, tranquil stars) and romantic overtones (ethereal touch, pearls of love, velvet breaths) painted on a canvas of music, art, and dancing. Lovely on many layers. Best wishes in the contest, my friend. This should do very well ~ John
