summer wheat field


Summer vista by Shellebop


But still it stays
The butterfly sings
And opens purple summer
With the flutter of its wings

The earth will wave with corn
The gray-fly choir will mourn
And mares will neigh with
Stallions that they mate, foals they’ve borne
And all shall know the wonder of purple summer
