From the recording People On The Porch & Other Sparkling Folk
Summertime fireflies are the most magical things! When the guitar twinkles...imagine them and smile.
You and me / on the back porch swing.
Holding hands while fireflies make
That twinkle in your eye, hey I like it!
When you’re looking at me
In the firefly, light
of Summer dreams
To put up in a jar once we made those
Lying awake two people watching 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.
To put up in a jar once
we made those summertime dreams.
Here’s a summer recipe
Set to poetry
I’ll sell 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 summer… ( Time goes by so 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 watching stars.
