Summer love

One evening in the early summer

There was a special light in the air.

Midges danced around Ruby like small diamonds;

Ruby

Brother and sister enjoyed

Some quiet moments of beauty while Simson charged in for a dip;

Sibling love copy

And a special glow painted the landscape

With summer light.

Summer glow
