The Summer Knows




The summer smiles

The summer knows

And unashamed

She sheds her clothes

The summer smoothes

The restless sky

And lovingly

She warms the sand

On which you lie

The summer knows

The summer's wise

She sees the doubts

Within your eyes

And so she takes

Her Summertime

Tells the moon to wait

And the sun to linger

Twist the world

Round her summer finger

Lets you see

The wonder of it all

And if you've learned

Your lesson well

There's little more

For her to tell

One last caress

It's time to dress

For fall...

 "The Summer Knows"

Marilyn and Alan Bergman
