A Summer's Day

Shakespeare compared one to a summer’s day,

How truthful was he to someone’s beauty,

Did he capture love’s true self?


Or only the looking glass,

True beauty such as yours,

Cannot be simply compared to a single day,


There is far too much to see,

From your raven hair,

Blowing in the wind,


Like the excitement of midnight on Halloween,

Which ends up being a stark contrast,

To the warm summer breeze that floats in your brown eyes,


Excitement that shines through you,

As you dance around,

Floating freely like first dancing snowflakes of winter,


Your heart beats pure,

Uncomplicated and simple,

Such as the budding of spring flowers,


Days come and go,

Many seems to flow together,

Never such as you my love,


Simply one cannot compare thee to a summer’s day,

For all the seasons flow beautifully in you,

One no greater than the other,


Each day my hearts beats for you,

Truly thy beauty holds me captive,

But tis your soul that binds me to you,


Time being endless,

Splendour such as yours,

Is truly a gift from heaven to see.

Your poem gives tthe reader a breathy, breezey feeling that goes with your description of nature. It gives your reader the experience of actually being there. I can feel the breeze cooling my face and ruffling my hsir. It is refreshing.as is your poem.

I really enjoyed how you absolutely animated the hair and the eyes in the description! The animation of them let out a beauty, like how Dickens weaves intricate pictures of every scene in his books, I could practically see this person you were describing. Very well done, thanks for the great read!

You are blessed to have such joy in the one you love. Beautiful poem!

Hampton commented on A Summer's Day


You pay tribute to one who through your eyes is flawless in this poem. and you do it well.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
