Shakespearean Sonnet

Two Seasons of Summer

by lightink

          Her lovely name melts slowly on my tongue,
          while bursts of flavors tickle me inside -
          freshberry kisses bubble up among
          the sweetest sighs - as wishful dreams collide.

          Belov-ed Summer - how I crave her zest:
          her earthy warmth and luster of renown.
          Her blooming fields and fertile curves suggest
          my bliss awaits beneath her verdant gown.

          But when she drops that sultry summer wrap,
          I see a dreary winter scene emerge
          as life escapes her frosty, barren lap -
          those starving bony limbs dissolve my urge.

          For summer holds sweet promise of surprise
          but at the end - it's winter in disguise.
