Summer Dreams
© Colette O’Connor 5/5/2017

You and me on the back porch swing.
Holding hands while fireflies make
Summer dreams.
That twinkle in your eye, hey I like it!
When you’re looking at me
In the firefly, light
of Summer dreams.

Making some,
Making summer
To put up in a jar once we made those
summertime dreams.

Lying awake, two people hunting stars.
Got my wish made
Before they were gone.
That twinkle in the night, hey I like it
When you’re here with me
Making summer dreams.

Making some
Making Summer
To put up in a jar once
when we need those Summertime dreams.

Here’s a summer recipe
Set to poetry
I’ll sing it to you free
Put some warm memories
In a jar of clarity
Time will keep them sweet
For when you have the need of some, of Summer, that's put up in a jar
when you need those Summertime Dreams.
'Cuz time goes by too quickly.

Sitting down on the swing out back
Got the Dog at my feet and guitar on my lap.
Might find a new song to sing
If the fireflies whisper secret things.
Let the music wander where it goes
Fireflies are catching all the notes.
Of summer, making some. Making summer
Put them in a jar once you made those summertime dreams.

Lying awake, two people hunting stars.
