Sweet summer sounds begin night’s revelry
We gather newly, friends of every
walk of life distant paths did create
a journey that brings us here to this date.
Scan sure across the lawn and see each new
smile, response, laughter suggests we all knew
one another in time, another place
when life moved fast, our hearts barely at pace.
Visions complete alluring escapade
her eyes appear, are met by shadowed shade
A sudden stir captures the minions,
sweet elegance presents your white linens
I can only watch your beauty in grace
while everyone near, forgets our embrace.
