mi sai d'estate
di belle giornate
di notti trascorse
ad osservare le stelle
di musica forte
che supera il 
battito del cuore
e che pulsa nelle vene
di spensieratezza
con i capelli al vento
in spiaggia
di crema solare e
di bruciature
d'amore, di sole
di lucciole splendenti
di corse sotto un 
temporale improvviso
di erba appena tagliata
di frutta e di gelati
mi sai d'estate
mi sai di felicità
