My Heart Is In July


shifting away from June's bud
to leave dandelions scattered in the yard
this dawn of July
marks the end of a lie
a lie from past season
for a strong reason

in July
robin will make herself shy
and cover her reddish breast
with her celestial hued crest
then flap her wings to fly
close against the sky

i want to kiss July
and make July
lasting forever
in beauty but not ephemeral

i will preserve July
on my canvas and with magic brush
so that she will be enthralled and blush

i will paint July
with charming colour
so that she will be captured in delight
and her soul enraptured

because my heart is in July.

    This poem is truly beautiful, and the month of July, sticks in my heart also. Fabulous rhythm and rhyme and perfect final lines.

    Smiling at the memories

    of my perfect July.

The hour yet bears for thee and me
