A Kyrielle Entry

Summer Wine

by June Sargent

The grapes were ripe, the wine so sweet
Cicadas chirped in August heat
Young lovers kiss beneath the vine
I miss those days of summer wine

You pinned a flower in my hair
while strolling through the country fair
My heart kept humming, "He's So Fine."
I miss those days of summer wine

But now those summer days are gone
and autumn leaves enshroud the lawn
Sweet memories our lives define
I miss those days of summer wine

I miss the sparkle in your eyes
Though saddened by your silent cries,
disease will never steal what's mine
I miss those days of summer wine
