Reflections of Summer
Dirty grey sky with a cold wind,
Rainwet streets in wintertime
No sun to see.
Heres the time of dreariness!
The trees are bare,
But I remember them heavy with leaves;
In my wardrobe lie the T-shirts
Of sunnier days.
Pictures of summer time journeys
Fill my empty brain
And pictures of lush greenery
Reflect before my dreamy eyes.
Joy seems inappropriate in wintertime,
Gloominess is this times chill
But the laughter of brighter days
Echoes in my weary heart.
Reflections of summer
In a time of contemplation;
Memoirs of light and warmth
To lighten the burden of colder times.
So Im waiting for spring and summer
In my room thats holding the warmth
And the relics of the time to come.
